Guide Me

This page is intended to guide faculty through the process of finding the best technologies and teaching practices for your courses. It will be most helpful for faculty who know where they want to start but need some direction on choosing the right tools or how to effectively teach with those tools. 

As you make decisions and work your way through the site, you will be directed to other University resources that will help you with the needs you identify. We want to emphasize that effective remote teaching requires not only a sound knowledge of the technology being used, but also the integration of best pedagogical practices, so this tool provides links to both types of resources.

This guiding matrix is meant as a starting point for how to teach effectively in multiple modalities. We also recommend you reach out to the Center for Educational Innovation or your departmental Instructional Support staff for specific guidance on how to implement best practices into your teaching.
