Yesterday, the University announced that all undergraduate in-person instruction will shift to remote learning starting tomorrow, August 19.
We understand this may present some challenges for instructors who planned to teach in-person this semester. Know that support is available for you.
We highly recommend continuing to check the Keep Teaching website , a resource for all UNC Faculty and Teaching Assistants on using remote instructional tools and methods. You can also request a 30-minute confidential consultation to discuss any challenges, plans, strategies, tools, or concerns you may have.
The website is updated frequently, and there is a new Remote Teaching page to help you quickly transition to remote instruction. Here is a gist of what you will find on this resource page.

See Remote Teaching for details on each of these teaching strategies, with examples of synchronous and asynchronous activities:
- Group Projects
