Additional Detail

In an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19, educational institutions across the country shifted their courses online for the remainder of the spring 2020 term. Many are considering online delivery options for summer and fall terms. While many institutions have offered support from their distance learning departments, a number of questions still remain for faculty members, as they rapidly move their courses to online delivery.

Considering common questions from the social media group “Pandemic Pedagogy,” this online seminar will assist you with considering how to deliver your newly developing online content in an inclusive and accessible way. In particular, you will receive practical tips about how to convert your content to online delivery quickly.
