DLS Offering Remote Instruction Guide and Workshops

April 28, 2020

Summer Sessions 2020 will be conducted in a remote instruction format. To support instructors, DLS has developed the following resources also available on the DLS website Summer Sessions page.

Remote Instruction Guide
Developed specifically for Summer Sessions instructors, this guide serves as a resource on how to use your bCourses site as your virtual classroom, develop asynchronous instructional materials, foster student-to-student interaction, and reimagine assignments and exams for a remote format. The guide is provided in bCourses as a self-enrollment course. You can access the guide via the following link: https://bcourses.berkeley.edu/enroll/AJMHL8

Remote Instruction Strategies for Summer Sessions Instructors
This series of synchronous virtual training sessions are being offered through May and highlight strategies for how to approach remote instruction. Using the Remote Instruction Guide as the foundation, these sessions will focus on defining the difference between asynchronous and synchronous instruction and demonstrate how to develop your bCourses site for remote instruction. To learn more about these sessions and register for one, visit the Remote Instruction Strategies for Summer Sessions Instructors series on the AIS Upcoming Events page.

Tools for Remote Instruction Training Sessions
DLS is offering additional virtual training sessions on how to use Zoom, bCourses and other digital tools to support remote instruction. Our Digital Tools to Support Remote Instruction sessions cover basic bCourses, such as building your course site,  and Zoom features, such as how to schedule a meeting, how to record, and how to share recordings with students. To sign up for one of these training sessions, visit the
