Maintaining Instructional Continuity (COVID-19)

This page provides CHSS faculty and graduate teaching assistants with information on how to maintain instructional continuity during the COVID-19 event.

On March 17th, we held a WebEx panel titled, “Moving to Virtual Alternative Teaching: Practical Recommendations and Advice from CHSS Faculty” to offer practical suggestions for how to teach effectively online. The recorded WebEx has valuable tips, tools, and resources from some of our CHSS faculty online experts.

Please consider viewing the video and downloading the PowerPoint to access all embedded links. 

Additional Resources

For additional resources, the Stearns Center for Teaching and Learning is working diligently to provide services to faculty across the university as Mason expands further into virtual instruction. Guidance, best practices, and helpful resources are available on the Stearns Center’s Instructional Continuity page and on ITS’s Blackboard Knowledge Base page to help support this transition. The Stearns Center is updating information daily so please check their site often.

CHSS faculty member, Esperanza Roman-Mendoza, has created a short student survey which can be tailored to meet individual faculty needs.

Please also reach out to your faculty colleagues who have more experience teaching online and do not hesitate to contact Jaime Lester, Associate Dean for Faculty Affairs and Strategic Initiatives.

You are not alone! We are all in this together as a Mason and CHSS community!
