UIC’s College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts: a remote teaching resource


In addition to keeping our students, faculty, and staff safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic, UIC’s College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts remains committed to providing education of the highest standard. This guide includes tips and resources to help you teach from a distance, reflecting recommendations shared from faculty in each school, the college, and the university. We will update it as circumstances evolve. 


We recognize that each school and faculty member will approach remote teaching differently; that is expected. Most importantly, we encourage faculty to do what is right for our students and to begin by valuing equity — providing the same amount of time and instruction to each student, regardless of their ability to access technology. And while this will be challenging for all, we encourage you to consider it an opportunity rather than an obstacle. To assist you, this wiki provides some tools: platforms and pedagogy. Platforms provides guidance on CADA’s recommended content and communications tools, Blackboard and Zoom. Pedagogy includes suggestions about reframing studio culture and advocating for global conversations.


We know this moment is challenging, but we encourage you to use this time to experiment and position optimistic teaching alternatives — perhaps with the new tools and content of this moment in mind.
