Keep Teaching

COVID-19 has challenged our campus community in many ways – not least by forcing a shift to remote instructional tools and methods. DLL has helped lead a collaborative, campus-wide effort to provide resources, consultation, instructional design, course development, and best practices during this transition. We’re proud to have supported development of hundreds of courses and thousands of videos for remote or flexible instruction during 2020, continuing Carolina’s highest standards for research and instruction. In collaboration with the Center for Faculty Excellence, ITS Teaching & Learning, and representatives from a number of other campus academic and service units, DLL has provided training, consultations, and resources, all made available through the Keep Teaching website.
