For When You Are Just...
Instructors have a lot to do right now, especially those who have never or rarely taught online. The learning curve is mighty, the workload is substantial, and I know you all needed a break this week.
Take care of yourself! You are no good to your students when you are overwhelmed, exhausted, and completely frustrated. Even if it is just for a moment, take a break and remember that we are all going to get through this.
Do a lesson at a time, a week at a time.
Use your librarians. They have always been here to help you find materials and get students access. It's what they do.
Ask for help! Yes, I know we aren't used to that practice, but it's time.
Simplify! Simplify! Simplify!
I know you're being bombarded with all kinds of materials and resources on how to change your classes to online. This is the simplest and most relevant tool, by far, that I have seen. Thank you to David Buck from Howard Community College for sharing.
