Remote Teaching and Teaching Continuity Resources

With the possibility of campus closures due to health concerns or severe weather, it is very useful to plan for how to continue classes from a remote setting so that learning is continued to the best of our abilities.

All communications from Dr. Peggy Heinrich, Vice-President of Teaching, Learning, and Student Development, to faculty regarding the Spring 2020 Instructional Continuity Plan are archived on the Communications from VP of TLSD page of this site.

Resources and tips for utilizing our learning management system, Desire2Learn (D2L), can be found on the Distance Learning Teaching Continuity Strategies Page.

Additional resources and tips for facilitating class remotely can be found on the Remote Teaching and Teaching Continuity page on this site. In addition to suggestions for facilitating class remotely, the page includes a forum for posting any questions you have and a forum for sharing your own tips and strategies with your colleagues.

For questions and suggestions on using D2L, please contact the Instructional Improvement & Distance Learning Team.

For additional questions and suggestions on teaching in a remote setting, contact Tyler Roeger, Director of CETL, at
