Getting Started

With things moving at such a frantic pace, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and not know where to begin as our on-campus teaching moves online next week.

We have developed the following checklist of practical strategies that you can implement immediately to prepare students for success and guide their learning over the short term as you become more comfortable teaching online.

The checklist has been aligned to Deakin’s CloudFirst Learning Design Principles, but specifically provides practical strategies for teaching online in the given COVID-19 context where temporary remote delivery of on-campus teaching is required at short notice.

For those new to teaching online we also have a range of workshops available to assist with this transition and if you have any queries please email

A screen-reader accessible version of the checklist can be downloaded here 

For more information and updates please refer to the Transitioning Teaching Online homepage here.
