Faculty Planning Guide
1. What elements of face-to-face instruction can be supplemented or replaced with online instruction? Review your syllabus, your evaluation methods, and how you currently manage your class time. What concerns you about accomplishing those activities with remote instruction?
2. Is it reasonable for you to record and post your lecture content for students if a class session is canceled? Do some sessions still need to be conducted “live” and synchronous? What can be recorded and prepared in advance?
3. Are there essential interactive elements of your face-to-face sessions which need to be translated to online activities? If so, make a list of what those are to submit with your plan to your Department Chair or Director.
4. Do your students require specialized software, typically available in lab settings? Add this to your plans.
5. Review the Issues and Possible Solutions list below and select options to address your needs.
Additional Essential Needs:
1. Are you flexible in regards to technology access? Do you have a laptop or desktop? Office, home, both, neither? Communicate this need to the department chairs.
2. Will you have students with limited to no access to the appropriate technology?
Have technical questions or need help? Contact the CITL Office:
