Teaching During Campus Closure

A variety of circumstances might require you to temporarily take your class online with minimal notice: a campus closure, increased absenteeism during a flu outbreak, a family emergency requiring your presence elsewhere, etc. CIT has created this guide to provide you with some actions to take when making that shift quickly, including: delivering lectures online, distributing course materials through Canvas, and communicating with students outside of class.

 Check out CIT's list of resources to keep your class running smoothly in the event of an emergency.

A team of faculty Remote Instruction Consultants (RIC) has been assembled by Vice Provost for Academic Affairs Glenn Geiser-Getz and convened by Professor of Communication Meredith Harrigan. The RIC team represents different departments, disciplines, faculty roles, and areas of pedagogical expertise. They have experiences in such areas as reflective writing, service learning, open education, multimedia engagement, online instruction, field work, assessment, and other remote learning topics. Members of this group are available for peer-to-peer consultation and problem-solving. Please use this Request for Remote Instruction Consultation Form to request assistance.
