Getting Ready for Fall 2020!

As you prepare for the fall, we’ve put together a set of templates, guides, tip-sheets and many other resources to help.

Opportunities to prepare for a flexible Fall 2020

CNDLS invites you to explore the variety of options listed below that will help you adapt your class for a flexible Fall 2020. As a community, we face a number of unknowns, but we do know that uncertainty requires us to prepare in new ways for teaching and learning.  We know for certain that we must maximize our ability to pivot–even once classes begin–to different modalities.  Whether we are fully online, on campus, or a hybrid of the two, the options below are here to help you with this transition. 


Our annual Teaching, Learning, and Innovation Summer Institute (TLISI) invites the entire Georgetown community of educators to spend dedicated time reflecting on their own teaching and learning in an effort to continually refine and enhance the academic experience of our students for Fall 2020.

Course Design Institute

The Course Design Institute (CDI) is intended to help faculty plan for flexible fall 2020 teaching (in person, online, or hybrid). Each workshop will cover designing and delivering courses for the fall, with an emphasis on creating a strong community of learners, designing meaningful activities, and giving responsive feedback.

Digital Learning Days

Need help with grades in Canvas? Looking to learn how to record lectures in Panopto? Wondering how to use break out rooms in Zoom effectively? In August 2020, CNDLS will run Digital Learning Days, a series of workshops on how to use the tools and technologies for teaching and learning at Georgetown.
