2020 Class & Business Contingency Plan Training details:

Universities across Asia and Europe closest to the coronavirus outbreak have had to cancel classes or close their campuses. With faculty, staff, and students working in proximity from day-to-day campus activities, universities are particularly susceptible to the spread of infections. In the event of class cancellation or prolonged campus closures due to emergencies (e.g. Coronavirus, inclement weather), the Center for Innovative Learning (CIL) will be offering several hands-on training sessions as a contingency plan to continue class and business operations. During a training session, faculty and staff will have opportunities to practice setting up virtual meetings that can be used to conduct remote classes or work.

If you plan to travel internationally, the training introduces tools that can be used during your 14-day self-observation directive from President Dr. Williams. If you have recently traveled internationally, please contact the CIL at for alternative training opportunities.

***This training requires the use of a laptop computer. If you are in need of a laptop, please check one out from the Gibson Lewis Library front desk.***

The training sessions will cover these skills:

  • Sending requests to the CIL to post past video/audio recordings to current courses
  • Logging into Zoom, scheduling meetings, and launching conferences to host live synchronous online meetings for class and business
  • Scheduling, launching and conducting Canvas Conferences for course meetings
    • The Canvas Conference tool does have an audience response feature

The Center Innovative Learning offers faculty development events at UNTHSC. These sessions will provide participants with a solid foundation and essential skills in teaching and learning, course design, active learning, student assessment, and the use of effective instructional technologies. The CIL hosts workshops, lunch & learn, seminars, webinars and special formats. You can also Request Faculty Development from us.
