Faculty Development

How will you teach through a disruption?

Disruptions to our campus can be stressful for everyone involved. As faculty members, we can support our students by finding ways to help them continue to learn under difficult circumstances. We are in a unique leadership role where we can help our students navigate these challenges by being a focal point of communication and support. At the same time, we will be faced with our own challenges as we have to change our teaching modalities, support students who are affected and take care of ourselves in difficult situations. Many of the solutions involve the use of instructional technology, however, adapting to disruption is more than just adding technology to the mix. Supporting teaching and learning during this time includes making choices about using technology, but also prioritizing action and moving ahead with a plan for teaching continuity.

Visit Faculty Development's decision making resources for Teaching Through Disruptions. You can join us for one of our live sessions on Remote Teaching Strategies listed on our Events page. Also self-enroll in our Remote Teaching Community Canvas site to connect with eLearning Ambassadors and access additional resources. Visit the IT Workshop Calendar for additional offerings.
