Teaching Continuity
Dear Colleagues, 

As you may be aware, in response to COVID 19, Capilano University is transitioning to options for remote learning where possible. We want to share with you the resources to help you in this transition. With quick adaptations from in-person to remote teaching, we need to be flexible, strategize, and be empathic with ourselves, students and colleagues.  

The Centre for Teaching Excellence has created an eLearn site  Teaching Continuity with resources for moving to remote/online learning. There you will find documents and videos for using eLearn and video-conferencing for virtual office hours, meetings, and lecture capture as well as strategies for moving to remote learning. We are directing all teaching inquires to this site.  We are here to support you in these extraordinary times. 
Here are the resources available to you:  

  •  Daily online support chats form 8:30-10:00am in the eLearn site

  •  Teaching Continuity Webinars (link from eLearn site)
Monday, March 16th  10:30-11:15am & 1:30-2:15pm 
Tuesday, March 17th  10:30-11:15am
  • IT eLearn daily support 2:00-3:30pm.

To accommodate all the requests we've received and continue to receive, we will
have three 25-minute 1-on-1 drop-in sessions between 2 – 3:30 pm daily
(Monday – Friday). Drop-in sessions are on first come, first served basis and will be
held in BR 432B. 

  • Drop-in to the Centre for Teaching Excellence Monday through Friday 8:30-4:00pm. Evening hours upon request. 

  • Faculty peer-to-peer support. The following faculty have indicated that they are willing to support other faculty in the transition to remote teaching. Please reach out to them if need more help. Thank you for supporting each other!
