COVID-19 Resources

As the coronavirus pandemic is requiring many instructors to teach remotely with minimum preparation, many organizations have been creating online resources to support this work. Here you find links to just a short selection of these sites, that we think may be particularly valuable for our LiDA Community. 

Top Five Sources We Trust for Guidance During this Pandemic: 

  1. Common Sense Education’s Resources for Educators During the Coronavirus Pandemica collection of ideas and tips to support teaching during times of school closure for K-12 educators, parents, and advocates, created by Common Sense Education 
  2. COVID-19 – Learning Keeps Going a similar website for teachers, leaders and parents, created by ISTE in collaboration with other organizations
  3. Teaching During Times of Disruptiona guide for teaching remotely created by LiDA community members Eric Fredericksen and Lisa Brown for higher education faculty who are not familiar with teaching online; includes valuable short “how to” videos and handouts   
  4. The Online Learning Collective Facebook groupan open forum to share information and experiences with like-minded educators.
