Working and Teaching Online During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Remote Teaching and Learning Tools

Whether you need to teach or meet remotely the following workshops, videos, guides and webinars will help you get started.


Learning Technology Coaches

Learning Technology Coaches support the implementation of learning technology tools as the campus community transitions to online and remote teaching for the spring and summer terms.

They are available to support academic staff design and implement their online courses, adapt to new learning technologies and assist with session scheduling and facilitation. 

D2L

The learning management system (LMS) that the University of Calgary uses.  Design a course that effectively uses the tools that are available within the D2L (Brightspace) Learning Environment and host online courses.

General Resources


COVID-19 Research Collaboration

For faculty, postdocs, students, and staff engaged in COVID-19 research and related activities

Remote Experiential Learning Resources

Course disruption can be especially challenging when the course includes experiential learning (EL). Simply put, online EL will not fully replicate an in-person experience. In this unprecedented global event, we must consider alternate arrangements. With intentional design and assessment, online EL can facilitate some of the knowledge and skill development that would normally occur in-person. This page lists some resources to get you started on thinking through how you might approach the task.

Summer Wellness Series

During the summer months, the Taylor Institute for Teaching and Learning and the Campus Mental Health Strategy present a series of wellness webinars featuring UCalgary experts. These four sessions will offer participants important mental health tools to build resilience and compassion as we work through the COVID-19 crisis together.

Self Care and Crisis Response During COVID-19

Resilience During COVID-19 and Beyond
