Getting Ready to Teach Online

All courses are moving online for this term, during a time of great upheaval. We encourage instructors to focus on simplicity and to remember compassion for your students and yourselves as we all face these transitions. Our teams have developed resources to support instructors in teaching and learning online with new resources constantly added.
