TAs and Centers for Teaching and Learning will be invaluable sources of support as instructors transition to online learning in the wake of campus closures to slow the spread of COVID-19. In this 30-minute workshop, CIRTL Network staff will share tips from years of experience supporting online events, workshops, courses, seminars, and teaching institutes.

The workshop will address the less obvious parts of support - like avoiding assumptions about who does what in the online environment - as well as the obvious - like what to do when everything crashes in online sessions.

== Recognize the value of and participate in local professionally-focused learning communities associated with teaching and learning.

ISU's membership in CIRTL is sponsored in a partnership between CELT and the Graduate College.

CIRTL's mission is to enhance excellence in undergraduate education through the development of a national faculty committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices for diverse learners as part of successful and varied professional careers. It was established with the intent of preparing future science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) faculty across the nation, to ultimately improve the STEM learning of all students, at every college and university, and thereby to increase the diversity in STEM fields and the STEM literacy of the nation. The three CIRTL core ideas are: Evidence-based Teaching, Learning Communities, and Learning-through-Diversity.
