In the event that the College dismisses students or closes campus facilities, courses will be taught at a distance. In conjunction with Academic Affairs and Information Technology, the Academic Technology office will support faculty instructional needs through services that ensure continuity, academic rigor, and faculty-student engagement.
To prepare for a campus dismissal, faculty must determine the content, delivery techniques, and instructional needs of each course they teach, and how those course requirements can be adapted to a distance-learning environment.
If you have never published one of your courses in Canvas or elsewhere, or would appreciate a refresher on these skills, face-to-face workshops are being held as follows:
For the remainder of Spring 2020 continuing into May and Summer 2020, the Academic Technology Team is offering a variety of workshops. All are on online via Zoom. The full schedule is available here: https://sites.google.com/lemoyne.edu/remote-teaching-at-lmc/training-recordings
Additionally, online instruction via Zoom is also available. Please contact the IT Service Desk to submit a training request to Academic Technology.
Finally, we recommend joining or organizing small groups of faculty helping faculty. Meeting via phone or Zoom to share ideas and learn skills can help even the most confident of faculty prepare a course for alternate delivery.
If you have any questions related to Canvas, Zoom or other teaching and learning tools, please send any and all requests to the IT Service Desk.
