As we prepare for the start of the fall semester on September 2, I am sharing important guidelines and resources available to support both in-person and remote instruction.
Face shields, face coverings and other materials are being shipped to school/college pick-up locations for those teaching in person. Pick-up details will be sent to you shortly from your designated school and college representative. Microphones will be distributed through these same locations as they become available.
During the week of August 24, instructional buildings and classrooms will be unlocked for you to preview the physically distanced layout and technology. Cleaning supplies and wipes will be fully in position later the same week. You can view layouts for some classrooms in this video clip.
The university’s recommended course syllabus template is also now available, with updated language that is critical for instruction during the COVID-19 pandemic, and if you plan to use the campus proctoring tool. We strongly encourage you to use the campus syllabus template or incorporate the language into your own syllabus.
Find additional new information and resources:
- Health and safety information specific to instructors on campus and classrooms
- Guidelines and recommendations for lab and field courses
- Guidelines for supporting academic progress when students quarantine or isolate
- Upcoming professional development opportunities for instructors and TAs, such as TeachOnline@UW, Preparing to Teach Online Bootcamp, Active Teaching Labs and Learn@UW trainings
We continue to work on additional resources, and we will share those on the Instructional Continuity website and in future communications. If you have questions related to instruction, please contact us at email@example.com.
