Teaching in a Time of Uncertainty

The CFDE is deeply committed to helping our faculty and graduate instructors with their virtual teaching and learning goals through these precarious times. Wee have researched, identified, and gathered resources on topics that will best serve our community.

Below is a guide on “Teaching in a Time of Uncertainty” to help educators navigate through some issues they may encounter during this semester (for example, incorporating trauma-informed strategies and inclusivity into your online courses, dealing with your students’ emotional reactions, and minimizing the risk of "Zoombombing") through an inclusive and equitable lens. This document includes summary discussions and several links to online resources, articles, and books on trauma-informed teaching strategies, inclusive pedagogy, and technological advice for preventing unwanted guests in your online courses.

Time-sensitive webinars will be posted first when available, followed by recorded webinars. Over time, as resources become more available to the general public, we intend to make additional updates to this guide.
