Teaching Remotely During a Time of Disruption

Teaching and assessment strategies that we traditionally use in a physical classroom can also be done in pedagogically sound ways online. The goal of shifting to remote delivery is not to replicate your current in-person class or to create a fully developed online course, but rather to use McGill’s available online tools to adapt your teaching so that you can support learners with achieving the course goals.

Planning for remote delivery
Does adapting your courses for remote delivery seem like a daunting task? In this webinar, we will help you plan with your specific course context and desired learning outcomes in mind. We review the options and the rationales to balance fixed activities, where students are “in class” at the same time, and flexible activities, where students participate at a time that is possible for them. Note that this webinar is preparation for "Designing assessments for remote delivery." June 2
