The Teaching Commons has curated several helpful resources for exploring eLearning and remote teaching alongside other strategies for innovative, accessible, and diverse course design & delivery. If you know of other resources that may be a good fit for this page, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We have created a wealth of resources to support assessment, both in face-to-face and remote/online courses. The Teaching Commons also has a webinar series "12 Days of Assessment" so this page offers connection information to the live webinars, as well as access to recordings.
