L&S Readiness Criteria for Pandemic Remote Instruction

Below are five L&S criteria for remote instruction readiness, for pandemic remote instruction. Resources for each criteria are included as well.

Readiness Criteria

1. The amount of time a student spends learning (lectures, discussion, reading, assignments, studying, etc.) is parallel and equivalent to an in-person class of the same number of credit hours.

Remote instruction can be enriching and engaging. The credit hour helps ensure students receive the full education they deserve without demanding more effort than is required.
Resources & Suggestions:

2. Students are supported in adapting to the structure, schedule expectations, and technologies used in the remote course.  

Supporting students requires thorough communication with students about how their course is set up, what they have to do, and how the course is run administratively.
Resources & Suggestions:

3. The remote course is designed to include regular and substantive interaction between student/instructor and student/student.

A fully realized educational experience provides students with ample opportunity to ask questions and receive answers.    
Resources & Suggestions:
  • Define mechanisms for students to ask questions synchronously, asynchronously or both.
  • For classes with discussion sections, establish expectations and create venues for synchronous and/or asynchronous dialogue.

4. Lectures and course materials are comparable and appropriately adapted for remote teaching.

UW-Madison courses offer content that is multi-faceted and varied. A simple list of readings or powerpoints with no interactions is not a fully-realized UW experience.
Resources & Suggestions:

5. Methods for remote assessment, grading, and feedback are planned and clearly outlined for students.
