Remote Teaching

During this time of physical distance, we recognize the incredible task facing faculty and instructors who need to adapt their courses quickly. Many courses are well-established, were never intended to be delivered this way, and benefit greatly from in person delivery.

While this situation poses a significant challenge, often without perfect solutions, it is also an opportunity to consider new approaches. This page is intended to help with the process of adapting existing in-person courses for remote delivery as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Podcasts can be an effective tool for delivering course content and assessing student learning as post-secondary educators prepare to transition to fully remote teaching in the fall. Our guests share their own personal strategies for integrating podcasts in a range of disciplines from Communications to Nursing, and we discuss the impact of podcasts on student learning and engagement. Lots of great advice in this episode, including at least one crucial tip that our hosts, Chelsea Jones and Curtis Maloley, still need to practice.

Adapting your course: a six-part guide

Over the last several months, the teams in the Centre for Excellence in Learning and teaching have worked together to develop a wealth of new resources. This guide takes this work along with additional research to help you adjust your course as efficiently and effectively as possible.

While it is presented in six parts, it is truly an iterative process. You will likely make "big picture" decisions as you go through the guides, but feel free to revisit, refine, and adjust as needed.
