Vice Provost Cramer: UW-Madison Webinars on Teaching Remotely Starting 3/14/20

This e-mail was sent to UW-Madison instructors on 3/13/20.

Dear Colleagues,

Please share with your graduate teaching assistants.

We are here to support your efforts as you transition to alternate modes of course delivery. We will be offering a five-part webinar series that addresses key considerations for getting started, strategies and tools to help you communicate with your students, share content, assess their learning, and accomplish key course activities remotely, and how to find which options best meet you and your students’ needs.

The live webinars will be offered tomorrow, Saturday, March 14 – Tuesday, March 17. The topics are as follows:

Webinar 1 Topic: Communication & Collaboration Strategies

Webinar 2 Topic: Content & Sharing Strategies

Webinar 3 Topic: Assessment & Activities Strategies

Webinar 4 Topic: Access & Accessibility Strategies

Webinar 5 Topic: Course Goals & Storyboarding

For more details about each webinar, and to register, visit: You may choose to engage in a single webinar or multiple. The webinars will be offered in both live and recorded formats, accompanied with live Q&A.

The series is open to all UW-Madison faculty, instructors and graduate teaching assistants, and primarily intended for instructors who have little to no experience teaching remotely. The webinars will be conducted in Blackboard Collaborate. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to a Canvas course with more details about the webinar. We will also send an additional login reminder prior to the start of the webinar.

We hope you will join us for one or more of the sessions. Recordings and resources from each webinar will be posted on, where you can also find additional guidance and support resources related to instructional continuity.
