Instructional Continuity

Any one of an array of events can disrupt faculty’s ability to teach courses via on-campus, in-class sessions. Cal Poly’s commitment to students includes making sure that we provide students an opportunity to complete courses despite disruptions, whenever possible. The steady advancement of communication and instructional technologies has greatly enhanced faculty’s opportunities to provide quality virtual learning experiences in these situations. With  planning, training on selected user-friendly technologies, and available mentoring on effective instruction, faculty can be better prepared to continue instruction through many forms of instructional disruptions.



The Faculty Support Network brings together faculty who have experience with tools and techniques for effective virtual instruction as a resource for colleagues. With support through the provost's office, almost 90 faculty across campus are devoting between 4-8 hours a week through Spring Quarter to coaching and mentoring colleges. It is a complement to the CTLT's faculty support resources, services, and programs at a time of challenge adjusting to virtual instruction in Spring 2020.

Faculty in this network have significant experience, often including but not limited to participation in CTLT workshops, that enhance their virtual teaching skills. Listings are organized by college and each has noted their areas of particular experience so that colleagues can inquire about specific methods and tools of interest.

NOTE: Each faculty member's email address is clickable for email inquiries.
