Responsive and Flexible Course Policies
As part of the Georgia Tech Remote Teaching Academy for faculty, members of the Center for Teaching and Learning faculty created a variety of short videos on key topics related to remote teaching. All of the videos can be found on the Remote Teaching Academy Canvas site. We will highlight the videos in this series of posts over the next few weeks as well. Visit the CTL Keep Teaching site for extensive resources for teaching remotely. CTL faculty are also available to talk, answer questions, and think through pedagogical approaches with you.

2020 has been an unprecedented year for our world, and higher education has been deeply impacted as we move instruction online and continue online for the summer. Because of the shifting context of the pandemic, we must recognize that our students are not living in the same conditions they would on campus, which means our policies may need to be more flexible than when working with students face-to-face. In this video, Dr. Evan Mallen, Postdoctoral Fellow in the Center for Teaching and Learning, discussion the contextual elements we must factor in to typical policies such as attendance, participation, and assignment deadlines.
