Emergency Proof Your Course

While emergency-proofing is particularly important in winter, a variety of emergency scenarios can interrupt course instruction. Faculty members should consider preparing an instructional continuity plan for each class. This plan would include:

  • Details of how you plan to communicate with your students in the event of an emergency.
  • Prepared course materials that you can readily deliver online.
  • Mastery of alternative delivery mode for your course.

Whether you have extensive teaching experience or are just getting started, a continuity plan can help you prepare for any course interruptions. To learn more about alternative teaching strategies, see this preparedness guide from Information Technology Services (ITS):
