This week’s Grab-N-Go series is on “Instructor Presence.” Online courses lack many of the social cues that naturally occur with in-person courses. However, there are a number of ways to bridge that gap and create a rich, dynamic learning environment.

Thank you and take care!

Dear UTEP Faculty,

This week, we offer a Grab-N-Go on Synchronous Online Instruction.

While asynchronous teaching is ideal for most online courses, synchronous teaching offers some advantages to students' learning experiences. We hope you find the tips, linked resources, and accompanying video useful if and when you offer synchronous online sessions to your students.

Thank you, and have a wonderful long weekend!

Hey, Miners!

If you're planning to be on campus this semester, we encourage you to participate in UTEP's free coronavirus testing program.

Just go to consent.utep.edu to submit a one-time, online consent form. Then, stop by one of the convenient outdoor testing locations on campus between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. to be tested. No appointment necessary.

We appreciate your choice to be proactive about your health and the health of your fellow Miners. Your decision to be tested will help pave the way for a stronger, healthier, and safer UTEP campus.

Miners take care of Miners!

Hello UTEP faculty!

As we prepare for a fall semester during which many of UTEP’s courses will be taught online or with a significant online component, the Support for Online Learning (Sol) team offers the Grab-N-Go (https://www.utep.edu/faculty-development/sol/grabngo.html) series. This resource provides quick tips, links to additional resources, and faculty videos on a variety of topics related to effective online teaching. While we are currently focused on online instruction, these topics will apply to any mode of teaching.

The first two topics of the Grab-N-Go series are Universal Design and Online Course Syllabus.

We hope you will find them helpful, and if you have ideas for topics you’d like to see offered, please let us know.

We wish you a great semester!
