Moving to teaching online quickly

Making the move to teaching online quickly will be a huge challenge for many, both technically and pedagogically. 

Tawnya Means, Chair of AACSB's Online Learning Affiniity Group commented: "What we are doing with remote teaching [at this time] is NOT the model for online learning in which students learn best. Many faculty are just doing the best they can and many will do it quite poorly.

"This is not to fault the herculean efforts that are being done at this time. It is just that effective online teaching and learning requires planning, money, technology fit for the task, and time to get right. While the barrier of “you can’t do [fill in the blank with your topic/discipline] online” has been broken down in this radical shift for higher education, many are going to do this very badly and they are not going to enjoy it. We should not focus on doing it 'right' but instead on doing it 'well enough' that we can get through this experience. When the storm is passed, we need to revisit it to see what we can continue to do and what we need to do better. In the meantime, take care of each other, have compassion, and stay connected."

We at The Case Centre believe that at this difficult time it is vital that the case community comes together to share experiences and best practices. Moving to teaching (cases) online quickly may be challenging, but with the support of colleagues we can ensure that students have the most positive learning experience possible.

To support you we will be curating a list of relevant resources. The list below will be updated with new resources as colleagues around the globe produce them.

If you have written, or if you see, a relevant resource on these topics, please let us know and we'll add it to the list and share it with the case community via our social media channels.
