Blended and Remote Teaching

In 2020, in response to the demands of pandemic-era teaching, the CTE developed a robust set of programs and resources to help instructors navigate what we termed Adaptable Blended Instruction (for those teaching in socially distanced classroom contexts) and Adaptable Remote Instruction (for those teaching in fully remote — or synchronous online — contexts). 

Now, as the university looks hopefully to a return to more traditional in-person instruction this fall, we anticipate little need for blended or remote approaches. However, the CTE will maintain these resources for the time being for those instructors who have occasional need of them.

ARI Resources

For those needing to redesign a course for the remote context, our ARI Canvas course will guide you through the basics of Adaptable Remote Instruction (to access the Canvas course, enroll yourself online). In addition, you might find the following resources useful:

  • ARI Quick Start Checklist can be helpful as you’re getting started or as a follow-up check to make sure you haven’t missed anything; 
  • Instructional Technology FAQ provides answers to all the nitty gritty questions we’ve gotten about the instructional technologies you are planning to use.
