Teach Flexibly

As the University of Idaho helps to prevent the spread of COVID-19, please know that CETL is here to help every step of the way. Our advice? Try to rely on tools and workflows that are familiar to you & your students and roll out new tools only when necessary.

Strive to be there for your students - they're humans directly affected by this event on multiple levels. Be understanding. Care. Keep in mind that not all your students have Internet capabilities that support video. Do your best to teach as well as you can. Think small. And remember that we can be present in many ways, not just via our lectures.

Words of wisdom for the first day of class . . .
