The speed with which everyone moved from in-person classroom to emergency remote teaching due to the COVID-19 outbreak was staggering. As we head into the Fall 2020 semester, Nexus is here to support a thoughtful, planned approach for hybrid teaching that supports the quality of a Michigan Engineering education. This site offers guidance and resources for creating high production-quality remote courses, integrating alternative teaching strategies, and fostering faculty and student engagement.

Fall 2020 Instructional Consultations

As faculty adapt delivery modes for a semester that is unlike any we’ve seen before, Nexus is offering one-on-one instructional consultations to all College of Engineering faculty and GSIs teaching Fall 2020 courses. These personalized consultations will include topics such as alternate course planning strategies for online delivery, best practices for teaching across modalities, integrating online exams and alternate assessment strategies, and leveraging online technology tools for student engagement.
