Teaching Continuity Guide

This guide is to help prepare faculty to teach remotely in the event the campus is closed or they are unable to come to campus.

Resources for Faculty

Some resources to navigate and streamline the "emergency" process of moving from a face-to-face environment to an online environment for courses are listed below. Questions? Ask a librarian or Instructional Design & Technology. We will be happy to assist you!

  • Statement on Fair Use and Emergency Remote Teaching 
  • Blog post on copyright, Fair use, & exigent circumstances -- Kyle Courtney
  • Copyright in a Time of Pandemic -- Missouri Valley College

  • Guide to emergency online pedagogy focusing on practices rather than tech -- William Fisher

  • What if I use a film or video for a class, can I still show it in an online class?

    • It is best if you have students locate the film through a streaming service such as Amazon Prime or Netflix and watch the film. You can then have students respond to some reflective questions in a Discussion Board or written assignment they have to submit to Canvas. If you have additional questions, please contact a librarian.

  • Intellectual Property

    • If you want to use something created by someone else, best practice is to contact the person to get permission to use it. If you either don't hear back from them or they say 'no', don't use it.

    • NNU Intellectual Property Policy

      • Refer to the Faculty Policy Manual, section 6.12.3 a through c

Librarians can assist with locating electronic resources to replace print texts being used in the face-to-face environment.
