Instructional Continuity - Preparation Checklist

Steps to take to ensure instructional continuity for a face-to-face course.

The Innovations in Learning team is in the process of creating "Just-in-Time" tutorials to help instructors transition their course/content from the classroom to the online environment. The new tutorials and resources will be added to the Knowledgebase, Canvas, and the UW-Parkside website. 

Consider the following:
  • What elements of your face-to-face class could be supplemented using online content? 
  • Could you record your lecture and post it in Canvas if a class session is canceled? (See Kaltura My Media resources)
  • Can interactive elements of your face-to-face class be converted into online activities? (See Using Discussions for Activities & Assessments
  • Do you want to host synchronous class session using Collaborate Ultra in place of a face-to-face class session? (See Collaborate Ultra resources

Steps to take before a campus closure:
  1. Decide which instructional continuity options you will use during a closure. 
  2. Take time to explore and practice with any technologies you might use in the event of a closure.  
  3. Establish your plans for communicating with students in the event of a closure at the beginning of the term. 
  4. Share those plans in-class, on your syllabi, and Canvas. 

Steps to take during a campus closure 
  1. Communicate your instructional continuity plans for that day’s class session by sending.
