Remote Teaching Resources

This page will be continually updated – please come back frequently!

These are stressful and unprecedented times, and many educators are teaching online in a new and complex way. In an effort to support fellow educators, Landmark Outreach Professional Development has curated resources and best practices to help you structure remote learning to support all students. As you explore these resources and adapt them to suit your needs, keep in mind these helpful guidelines for creating content that is accessible to all students. 

Here are 5 guidelines for creating accessible content:

  1. Be explicit about specific components and expectations for each assignment. For example: if you are assigning students to compose a paragraph, be sure to provide them with a template and remind them of the role of each part of the template. 
  2. Provide samples wherever possible.  For example, if you require discussion board posts, create a post that demonstrates class expectations. If meeting virtually is a part of your instruction, set clear expectations for virtual meetings for your students. 
  3. Always provide clear step-by-step directions. If possible, break assignments down into chunks and assign those chunks separately.   
  4. Differentiate instruction by allowing students to complete or demonstrate their understanding in a variety of formats. For example, allow students to submit a voice recording instead of a piece of writing. 
  5. Make no assumptions about what students remember. Circle back on skills as reminders to students and provide access to past concepts.
