Action Plan Remote Teaching
Making a remote teaching plan is a bit different from what you might be used to. But spending some extra time on planning and designing your plan allows you to create a more sustainable programme that can serve you for several years. On this website, we have collected all the information you need to get started and create a high-quality remote teaching plan. The overview we have shared below will help you find your way through the information we provide and offer a step-by-step plan to get you started.
Action Plan, Step-by-Step
Before you start with your plan
- Consult the Leiden University’s Code of Conduct on Remote Teaching
- Make yourself familiar with what has already been decided by your faculty, institute, or educational directors about tools, methods, and procedures.
- Find out which options you have for digital examination and look up any related instructions provided by your faculty or institute.
- Find out where you can go for support. You can check out the Support at your Faculty page on this website if you are uncertain whom to contact.
- It can be really helpful to start a group with fellow teachers to work on the redesign together, so you can exchange best practices and ideas.
Build your foundation
- Identify your educational objectives. You might have to restructure your existing course so we advise you to go back to the core, what is the educational objective of the course?
- Brush up your didactic knowledge. We invite you to follow the webinars that you can find on our Webinars page.
- Acquaint yourself with the main considerations regarding remote teaching. If you take these into account you have all the ingredients to build a strong plan.
Design your Remote Teaching plan
- Let the roadmap to flexible education guide you through the steps of the design process. By answering the questions in the roadmap, you’ll find yourself sketching out your remote teaching program fast and efficiently.
- Have a look at the Formats and Activities page on this website. Identify which would be relevant for your course and objectives.
- Find out if there is existing content available from previous years, or if there are other open educational resources (OER) that can be used. This will save you precious time. We shared tips on the Open Educational Resources page on this website.
- Read through the Software section on this website, so you can familiarize yourself with the recommended tools and decide which would work for you and your course.
- Make sure you are aware of the accessible teaching vision of Leiden University that you can find on the Accessible education for all page on this website.
