Curriculum, Instruction & Assessment (Session 2)

Shifting to teaching online can be a daunting task for administrators, teachers and students. The purpose of this resource is to provide educators with learning materials and resources to help with this shift.

To support a shift in teaching online, there are four major areas to consider: 1) structures & routines, 2) communication, 3) community building  and 4) curriculum, instruction and assessment. 

Each of these areas will support a shift to teaching online. In all cases, we are trying to build instructional environments that are: 

  • Predictable
  • Flexible
  • Connected 
  • Student Empowered

Modes of learning

The Curriculum Instruction and Assessment e-Notebook is the primary resource. This is the second of four e-Notebooks that will be shared to support administrators and teachers relative to the Shift to Remote Learning. The notebook is intended to be used synchronously or asynchronously, depending on the end user. The material in the e-Notebook is also presented on a web page.
