Preparing a backup plan for teaching

June 1st through November 30th is hurricane season for the Atlantic and the State of Florida. Given our close proximity to the water, USFSP must prepare for emergency closings due to inclement weather including flooding, tornados, tropical storms and hurricanes. It’s imperative that as a university community, we have alternate plans to continue the teaching and learning process should the campus be closed and not able to reopen due to damage.
The Emergency Preparedness for Your Course document shares information and tutorials to enable faculty to use Canvas to teach and communicate with their students if campus is closed for an extended period of time due to an emergency.

Teaching & Learning – Reciprocal Feedback in the Online Classroom – Magna Publications.

Understanding learners’ experiences in the online classroom can help you improve your courses for current and future students and help build a strong learning community. Jill Schiefelbein, owner and guru of Impromptu Guru, a company focused on helping individuals and groups improve communication in both face-to-face and online environments, recommends using a reciprocal feedback process to elicit this valuable information from students.

Giving feedback about the learning experience might be new to some students. In order to get students on board with this process, Schiefelbein includes two videos in her courses: one that introduces the instructor and one that explains course expectations. “I make these two separate videos because they are for two very different purposes.
