I Want my Students to Know How to Reach Me

Question

How do I tell my students how to reach me?

Answer

Letting your students know your availability and how to reach you is necessary in a face-to-face setting, but even more so during remote learning. In face-to-face courses students and faculty rely on informal communication before, during, and after class to ask questions about managing their courses. Inform your students early of your preferred method of communication and set a standard for that communication that can remain intact throughout any semester schedule changes. Brainstorm backup communication tools, such as WebEx and Blackboard Collaborate, if face-to-face announcements and meetings become unavailable.  Check out this tip sheet (ACUE, 2020) on how to set expectations with students for your presence/availability in a remote setting.

Please see the Creative Course Delivery website.
