Resources for Teaching Online

(last update on 10/15/21)

As an academic health center, we are in the relatively unique position to be both able and required to teach as we serve…in ideal and unanticipated circumstances…and all points in between. Given our current situation, our traditional in-person teaching environment is compromised. For those of us who may be unfamiliar with remote teaching or just unsure of how to implement it on the fly, ensuring that our learners don’t fall behind can be an added stressor. Don’t let that happen to you!

 We are here to help!
