Keep Teaching at Carey
COVID-19 presents us with an unusual challenge. However, what we learn now will serve us well in the future; learning new strategies and technologies will make us stronger as a university and as educators.
The Teaching & Learning (T&L) team will partner each Spring II faculty with a T&L team member for one-on-one support. T&L will also help to facilitate collaboration between faculty who are teaching the same course.
For those who have worked closely with T&L previously, please note that T&L will not be able to provide the same depth of support for individual courses as we have in the past. We strongly encourage hiring TAs to assist with direct course support.
To keep teaching at Carey, faculty will deliver courses through remote instruction or by utilizing an existing online course. T&L will use this site to provide Carey faculty with the tools needed for remote instruction. We will update this site as additional resources become available.
Here are some ways in which remote instruction differs from teaching an existing online course:
|remote instruction||existing online course|
|Class meets in real-time (i.e., synchronously) via Zoom||Student learning happens primarily independently (i.e., asynchronously)|
|Mimics the in-person classroom||Sync sessions (3-4 hours total) are optional for students|
|Classroom discussions are conducted in real-time via Zoom||Heavy discussion board engagement|
Resources for Remote Instruction

Remote Instruction Teaching Guide. Faculty are encouraged to visit the Faculty Resources tab in Blackboard for step-by-step instructions on the basics of remote instruction, such as how to prepare Blackboard before the term begins and tips for conducting live class sessions via Zoom.
Technology Questions? T&L will host a daily drop-in meeting from 12-1 to answer any questions regarding classroom technology tools such as Zoom and Blackboard.
