As we continue with alternate modes of courses delivery in the Spring/Summer 2020 term, we’ve pulled together a variety of supports and resources below to help you transition from face-to-face to online teaching. It will be updated regularly as more resources become available.

As you develop your courses, remember to be pragmatic. Simple solutions, flexibility and regular communication will help everyone manage priorities in our current situation.
