Faculty Instructional Tools 101 - Remote Edition

From the Office of the University Provost:

As ASU continues to monitor COVID-19, the university has transitioned from in-person teaching and learning to remote options. The university’s primary goal is the continuation of classes and the commitment to high-quality delivery of learning, so that all students can progress toward their academic goals uninterrupted.

Start Here with the ASU Remote Teaching Toolkit


In addition to the ASU Remote Teaching Toolkit, please review this collection of resources curated by the Edson College Instructional Design Team to learn more about strategies and tools available to you as you continue to deliver exceptional learning experiences for all Edson College students.divider lines
