We invite you to join us Monday for a practical workshop on building exams and finalizing grades. These hour-long sessions are live on Zoom at 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. 

Faculty who are interested in enhancing the explicit ties between the curriculum and students’ growing career readiness skills are invited to submit a short letter of interest in a small, stipended learning and leadership community that will meet remotely once this summer and throughout the next academic year.

Join UO Online and TEP as we discuss strategies and processes for finishing the term with grace and efficiency. 

Summer Planning

Policy update 
Some summer remote courses were scheduled without meeting times before Academic Council set its expectation for live engagement. They can proceed asynchronously because students can’t be required to be present at a time they didn’t sign up for. Academic Council does expect these instructors to find ways to engage students directly through, for example, discussion boards, office hours, or optional drop-in meeting times. This applies only to courses listed as REMOTE and without times on the summer class schedule.

Remote Course Builder 
TEP and UO Online offer this streamlined resource to learn the “building blocks” of a UO remote course.

Workshop: Orientation to Remote Summer Teaching  
Are you teaching this summer and looking for a time-saving introduction to the UO policies that govern, teaching practices that elevate, and resources that support remote teaching and learning? TEP, UO Online, and Information Services will help you get started.

During this workshop we’ll share the latest Academic Council expectations and highlight strategies for teaching in Canvas and Zoom, developing synchronous class sessions, engaging your students, and assessing their learning.
