Faculty Guide for Online Teaching

As we in our role as faculty envision and create innovative, critical, and creative courses that respond to our current moment living in and through a global pandemic, a variety of resources, tools, and tutorials have been developed to assist in doing our work. While none of us could have predicted nor were prepared for this moment, moving forward we believe that as a community of artists, designers, scholars, and educators we will be able to rise to the challenge to provide our students and ourselves time and spaces - online and in person - to think, discuss, and make work that contributes to our shared world. 

In this section, you will find a number of resources to help you prepare yourself, your course, and your students for the fall semester. Each of our courses has unique characteristics, creative challenges, and opportunities to make the best of our new educational and artistic realities. These resources are meant to be a jumping off point that we all can remix, revise, and retool for our own purposes as we see fit.
Key things to remember in all of this preparation are:
  1. We are one another's best resources. We have dedicated colleagues - faculty, staff, and administrators - who are willing and able to help in this process that is new for many.
  2. We are in this together so if you are having a challenge or have an idea, please share it with everyone.
  3. These are challenging circumstances, so remember to be kind to yourself, one another, and your students as we prepare for a changed educational dynamic.
