TLC Staff will be available starting every Tuesday and Thursday through the end of summer via Zoom for faculty or instructors or staff to drop by if you need any help, want to chat, or have questions.
In the PDF guide below, we condensed many of the ideas and best practices around online instruction discussed in our 6-week pedagogy course, Bricks + Clicks to provide a basic set of guidelines to work from in considering virtual instruction for your courses.
The following checklist provides possible solutions as well as resources useful in the event of student’s or faculty’s prolonged absence or campus closure.
TOP SOLUTION: Use the Nest as a central hub for your students since your courses already exist and students are populated in them.
NEED: Establish a mode of communication between faculty and students. Make sure students are aware you are using this communication. They will need to check their Otis Emails as College systems are automatically synced to that email.
Zoom - meet with students synchronously online
NEED: Make syllabus available digitally.
NEED: Share documents, readings, presentations, images, and other course materials.
TOP TIP: Need a quick way to digitize hard copy resources? Use your phone to snap pictures or download the free Adobe Scan app to use your phone to create PDFs.
NEED: To meet with students and actively engage with instructional content.
NEED: Capture teaching to share with students virtually.
NEED: Maintaining designated time for students to meet with you virtually.
NEED: Make sure you can review work and share coursework feedback with students.
Any communication with instructors involving students disclosing their need for accommodations will be handled by Dr. Carol D. Branch via email from firstname.lastname@example.org. Letters will be sent as PDF attachments as needed. If a faculty/instructor has questions, please email Dr. Carol Branch directly.
