Course Continuity

As the University of Delaware prepares for potential impacts to our campus from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), many instructors are wondering how they will continue to teach as the university transitions most of its teaching activities online this semester. Teaching in times of disruption can be challenging. Fortunately, the UD teaching community has access to a number of tools that can help instructors move elements of their classes online to support remote teaching and learning.

UD’s primary online resource for this transition on online teaching is the Faculty Commons’ Course Continuity website. This resource provides resources for the most commonly used technology-facilitated solutions (e.g. Canvas, Zoom).

If your course doesn’t translate easily into a digital format, we are prepared to help! Connect with a CTAL consultant.

One last recommendation: When national and international news is affecting our community, we recommend reviewing our “Difficult Dialogues” teaching guide. It’s a helpful reminder that many of us have taught through challenging times in the past, and it suggests some simple steps instructors can take to make things a little easier on themselves and their students.
