Seminar - A Case Study of How Instructional Technology Helped Students Complete Courses Following the Devastating April 2011 Tornadoes: An Academic Continuity Story
Thursday, February 23, 2012 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (CST)
On April 27th, 2011 the city of Tuscaloosa was devastated by a large tornado that passed just blocks from the University of Alabama campus. Once the scale of the destruction was realized, it was announced that UA would suspend classes for the remainder of the semester. A variety of online instructional resources and other tools allowed for the continuation of coursework at a time when face-to-face instruction was not possible. Join members from the UA Center for Instructional Technology, Arts & Sciences eTech, and the distance education program in the College of Continuing Studies for a discussion about challenges associated with maintaining academic continuity and what instructional support units and instructors can do to be prepared for the potential of future disasters.
