Building Online Content for Contingency Instruction Workshop Bookmark and Share

Dec 17

9 a.m. to 4 p.m. @ KRNS 210
Free, registration required

With the ever-present risk of natural events impacting the academic calendar, now is the time to plan for contingency instruction in order to maintain instructional fluidity. This workshop will introduce faculty to the technological tools available for maintaining academic continuity in the times of distress on and around the CCU campus, which may impact the ability for faculty to teach, and/or for students to continue their learning experience. The ultimate goal of this all-day workshop is for faculty to complete a Contingency Plan for one or more class modules.

This workshop will focus on the development of a contingency instruction plan for your course(s), in the event of an extended campus closure. A variety of topics will be discussed that will provide you with not only a framework for Best Practices for Developing Contingency Instruction, but also specific Technology Tools available to you that will aid in the development of content in your specific disciplines. Participants are encouraged to bring an open mind and student learning outcomes, as well as content, for the development of a learning module that could be implemented as part of a contingency plan.

We will take a break for lunch on your own from noon to 1 p.m.

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
1. Outline the expected instructional responsibilities, as specified by CCU, during times of crisis
2. Develop course content for delivery online
3. Develop a communication plan for your class
4. Identify currently available technologies for teaching, learning, and communication along with important processes on and off the CCU campus that will allow for creative solutions for maintaining student learning during times of distress on and around the CCU campus
5. Develop activities and assignments students can complete online
6. Distinguish between critical, essential, and optional Academic Continuity activities, and develop a planning template for these elements within your course
7. With the assistance of the instructor, complete an Academic Continuity Plan for one or more designated class modules
