How is teaching in-person different during a pandemic?

  • Think asynchronous first:
    Prepare your Canvas course site as if you were teaching online. Load your syllabus, readings, learnings activities, and assignments into Canvas.
  • Utilize a Canvas template to help organize your course content:
    Log into Canvas and visit the Canvas Commons to review Baylor created templates.
  • Keep in mind the three C’s:
    Clarity, Consistency and Connectedness
  • Utilize the online discussion forums to supplement your in-person discussions:
    Online discussions prior to in-person class sessions allow students to build voice and confidence.
