For fall 2020, we will move from emergency remote teaching to effective and adaptive online or HyFlex teaching. This site supports that flexibility. It provides faculty and staff a quick reference for best practices, information, and resources—regardless of teaching mode. Note: the HyFlex Classroom list is now available!

The Faculty Engagement and Development (FED), members of the faculty, instructional staff, and UHIT have written the following guide and gathered resources to help you prepare for teaching online and in the hyflex environment.
