All campuses are closed to public per state emergency order. All classes at all UW-Green Bay campuses will be taught via alternative delivery methods through the spring semester. Visit our coronavirus (COVID-19) website for more information.

Faculty Resources

All instructors, working with their departmental colleagues, should think creatively of ways to deliver curriculum in alternative modalities should the need arise. For example, can your course be moved online, are there alternative assignments you can use in place of things like labs, etc., or in the case where this is not possible, can we determine how to work with students to complete the semester in the event of an interruption? We hope this will not be the case and have no indication currently that we will need to do this, but we should be prepared. The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL) has prepared collections of resources in regards to moving courses online and insuring that we are teaching as part of a safe and inclusive environment for all students.

Additionally, Canvas provides 24x7 support for instructors (tel: 1 (855) 652-0700, or live chat) and students. (tel: 1 (855) 651-9700‚Äč, or live chat)

Webinars (aka: "The Room of Requirement")

Taking a cue from Harry Potter, we want to give instructors the help they need. We will offer twice-daily interactive webinars where instructors can come to get answers for their most pressing questions about teaching at a distance. Starting the week of March 16th and continuing as long as needed. Webinars will be held from 10-11 a.m. and 1-2 p.m. Advance sign-up is not necessary.
