Planning for Instructional Contingencies

There is a large and growing body of literature on teaching effectively online, and it’s important to know that effective instructional practices often differ in online contexts. However, in a contingency situation where the shift to online instruction is unanticipated, it will not be possible to implement all of the best practices that would usually be involved in an online course.

The following pages contain some considerations and strategies for online instruction. In MTLE, we often talk about the importance of manageable change, and these resources are intended to help you shift to online instruction in ways that center student needs while also recognizing the uniqueness of this situation.
