Empty UVA Grounds



This website aims to provide you with both the pedagogical and technological support you need to respond to any type of teaching disruption. This could include a pandemic, natural disaster, or technological challenge. The following resources can help you in the shift to emergency remote teaching and if you're looking for ways to carefully design your course for an online environment.


For both sudden and anticipated teaching disruptions, communication with students, including teaching assistants if you have, should be your first priority. See the Checklist to help you decide what steps to take.



Find resources to support the quick switch to remote or hybrid teaching, such as in the case of an unexpected teaching disruption or when the semester is largely underway and redesign is not a realistic option.



If you have advance notice of a teaching disruption or if it happens early in the semester, you can choose more intentional ways for adapting your course and engaging students.
