Plan for continuous learning despite COVID disruptions
Even with the return to classes on-campus, you may have students who fall ill and will have to isolate. To ensure continuous learning, you should be prepared to share digital course resources (teaching content and learning activities) with your students and to build a strong class community with open lines of communication between you and your students and your students and their peers.
These 5 principles can help ensure continuous learning:
Principle 1: Activate your Moodle Page
Activate your MOODLE page to ensure there is a simple, single place where students can locate your course resources.
Principle 2: Make your course content available online
The content could be anything related to key course concepts that students can read or watch at their own pace (ie: PPT slides, lecture recordings, simulations, supplemental videos, etc.) and should be shared through your course Moodle page.
To record with Zoom (live or ahead of class), open a Zoom session and select Record. You can pause recording as needed. For more information on teaching in Zoom, visit Zoom Webconferencing
Principle 3: Design your essential learning activities online
Design your essential learning activities online to ensure students who are ill or isolating have opportunity to deepen their understanding of the knowledge, skills or attitudes your course targets. Activities could be group discussion (synchronous or asynchronous), practice activities, project work
