Instructional continuity refers to the campus effort to continue course work during possible disruptions due to weather, illness, or other factors. Strategies for maintaining Instructional Continuity include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Making plans for communicating with students
- Considering possible adjustments to assignments
- Implementing technologies such as online audio and video collaboration, lecture capture, or discussion boards
In response to the outbreak of a new strain of Coronavirus, Fullerton College is working to ensure the health and safety of our campus community.
Faculty can prepare to teach their courses remotely via Canvas in the event of a disruption by reviewing the tools and strategies outlined in the table below. If you need support with any of these tools or strategies, contact your distance education division representative.
Students who feel scared or vulnerable in the event of a crisis may value the opportunity to process the crisis as part of a community, so consider adjusting course plans to include opportunities for discussion and reflections.
