Teaching remotely isn’t the same as teaching face-to-face. Remote teaching requires a combination of technical skills and cognitive flexibility to translate your in-person instruction online. Once you gain familiarity with this new medium, teaching remotely will present a slew of advantages that can produce an engaging, interactive, and effective learning experience.
Foundations of Remote Instruction

Lecturer, Management of Organizations
Dr. Pearce provides a list of “netiquette” standards for her class.
- Strive to create a welcoming and safe learning community.
- Treat our virtual classroom as a professional space.
- Once class begins use group chat for class content only.
- Find a professional location for your zoom classroom (i.e. desk, table, quiet room); if not possible consider using a green screen.
- Do not drive while zooming into a classroom.
- Be respectful and inclusive of one another both verbally and in chat.
- Strive to learn from one another and build on one another’s contributions.
- Be aware of strong language, all caps, and exclamation points
- Don’t post or share (even privately) inappropriate material.
- Step up and step back – encourage open participation from all in multiple formats (chat, raise hand, breakouts)
- Camera-on by default
- Mute by default except when speaking
