Instructional Continuity, New 1NSU Resources Page, Upcoming Training and More
Check out the New 1NSU Resources Page
Now is a time to share our best practices and resources for teaching online and working remotely. A new webpage has been created to do just that. The 1NSU Resources page can be found at https://www.nova.edu/lec/1-NSU-Resources.html. It contains a collection of resources from contributing colleges and departments throughout the University. Topics range from best practices in teaching online and setting up a home office to managing teams virtually. You can also get ideas on alternative educational plans. There is plenty more to explore as well! Don’t miss out, and check out some of these valuable resources.
We Welcome Your Input
Does your college or department have some additional resources that you think might benefit other faculty and/or staff? Please share. If you would like to add to the listing at https://www.nova.edu/lec/1-NSU-Resources.html please send your contribution to email@example.com.
We are One NSU!
Instructional Continuity From an NSU Faculty Member's Perspective
As an example of one of the 1NSU Resources Page, Dr. Steve Kramer shares his perspective on the Instructional Continuity. Dr. Kramer was asked to represent HCBE on the President’s Coronavirus Preparedness Team and felt that he is able to help the general NSU faculty population make a quick and effective transition to online by putting together a way to “teach then to fish” in a new way.

Transitioning Online - Instructional Continuity
Faculty should have a continuity plan in place for any potential disruption in campus operations that may affect your classroom or course delivery. With this in mind, the Learning and Educational Center has prepared an Instructional Continuity page of resources.
