Continuity of Instruction
Faculty Guide to Continuity of Instruction
This aforementioned document was modified from the Classroom Interruption Planning Guide (UMUC, 2008) to assist faculty prepare to continue to teach their classes in the event that the university should close due to an emergency.
If the university must close its doors due to an adverse event, all faculty members must be prepared to continue instruction from a distance. A plan should be prepared for each class that you teach. This plan should include communication with your students, having materials ready to deliver the class from a distance, and preparation for at least two delivery modes (use of Blackboard, and one other delivery mode).
Faculty are encouraged to discuss their continuity of instruction plans with their department chair and dean.
