In partnership with the Center for Distance Education, the Center for Research on Teaching and Learning Excellence coordinated and produced several training sessions for multiple colleges on how to transition to online instruction as a result of the campus shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These sessions occured on the week of March, 16-23, 2020 – the extended week of Spring Break.
As the University moved quickly to online instruction due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many faculty members created resources to assist each other during this transition. The online teaching and learning environment demands instructors and students to be flexible in the face of change, especially given the challenges all of us face around health, safety, and income.
Below is a master list of of various resources for going online. CRTLE will continue to add to this list as new material comes to our attention. If you would like to add any resources, please contact us at email@example.com.
