Teaching Remotely - Synchronously and Asynchronously

From time to time, external challenges may require face-to-face instruction be moved online. In many cases, it will be wise to use scheduled class time for doing things like presenting lectures through Zoom. Most instructors will also provide activities that students complete at other times. UIW possesses multiple technological and human resources to ensure that both synchronous and asynchronous instruction can continue without issue in a virtual environment. Remember to stay calm and wash your hands.
