Crowd-Sourced List of Resources to Support Remote Teaching
Visit bit.ly/rtresourcelist to view an expansive, crowd-sourced list of resources to support remote teaching that includes links to many institutional websites dedicated to the topic. If you notice that your institutional website is missing from the spreadsheet you may add it by using the following online form: bit.ly/rtresourceform.
Disciplinary resources on teaching remotely
Disciplinary societies have been crowd-sourcing resources on teaching remotely. These documents are not necessarily comprehensive or best practices, but they are being generated by communities of faculty developers and discipline-based education researchers and represent some of the best thinking around teaching effectively remotely:
- LeighAnn Tomaswick's compilation of online simulations, labs, and other instructional resources.
- POD (the society for Centers for Teaching and Learning) has promising practices and resources for moving courses online: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pVMh1qsjHuHIODqPsXkB7i-aXoSUsilj8H4UztM9xAo/edit#

Technology Tools and Resources
The Student Rating of Teaching Effectiveness (SRTEs) are Penn State's locally developed instrument for gathering feedback from students at the end of the term. The SRTEs were approved by the University Faculty Senate in 1985 and are administered by the Office of the Vice Provost of Academic Affairs. The Schreyer Institute manages the SRTE process and helps facilitate appropriate use of SRTE data.
- University of Colorado Boulder STEM Program - Integrating STEM Education at Colorado (iSTEM) brings together existing efforts and supports new efforts in STEM Education. The vision of iSTEM is to establish CU Boulder as a national hub of STEM education through an institute or center for STEM education.
