Instructional Continuity - Face-to-Face to Online
Extended campus closures and course cancellations can occur as a result of inclement weather, widespread illness, unexpected events, etc. In the event of a campus closure, instructors may be required to temporarily move their face-to-face courses online.
Yes. A Canvas course shell is automatically provided for all UW-Parkside courses, regardless of their format (i.e. face-to-face, hybrid, online).
- Use a web conferencing tool such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom to hold live class sessions or for one-on-one meetings with individual students.
- Use Canvas Announcements to post important information for your students.
- Take connectivity into consideration. Students who are not on campus may have poor internet connectivity and may not be able to participate in real time.
- Communication is key! Tell students how often you will communicate with them and what your turn-around time is for returning messages. This sets reasonable expectations.
