As higher education moves online for at least the next few months, we are all scrambling to share information about how to move online. The following is a compilation of (mostly) one page documents that overview key principles for moving online.
These documents have been developed from my own experience teaching online, working with students remotely in one-on-one meetings, delivering training sessions on both teaching with digital technologies and teaching remotely, as well as working with colleagues to imagine new solutions to teaching using different technologies.
This list will be updated as we walk through this new reality.
