Regardless of the instruction mode, all SILC faculty and instructors should consider the following . . .
Thoughtfully set expectations. Students must still be held accountable for full participation in your course.
Get to know your classroom and technology. Students should never be released from classes early whether those be in-person, in Zoom, or online classes. Have a back up plan in case technology doesn’t work or in case you become sick yourself.
Be consistent, but flexible. Students may be experiencing situations that we are unaware of, so be prepared to make decisions on a case-by-case basis.
Provide your instructor presence, expertise, and feedback. In-person and hybrid courses should not be turned into fully online courses without special approval.
No matter how much we plan, something unexpected will happen. Be up front with your students about this, and let them know you are in it together.
Contact the SILC Instructional Support team (email@example.com) whenever you have a question or concern. If we don’t know the answer, we’ll find someone who does.
