Resource: Low Tech Remote Teaching Principles

  1. Keep it simple and low tech.
  2. Accessibility is core, not optional.
  3. Provide structure.
  4. Use what is available.
  5. Keep learning active.
  6. Scaffold learning by chunking content.
  7. Have a clear course outline.
  8. Be visible and contactable.
  9. Help keep students on track.
  10. Be kind to yourself and empathic to your students.

This collection of Low-tech remote teaching principles is a 3 page Google Doc produced by the University of Cape Town’s Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching. It’s a fantastic resource that starts with the 10 principles listed above before moving on to a list of Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to remote teaching, and finishes with a helpful checklist for teachers moving online. I think that every educator would be well-served by downloading this document and keeping it pinned up somewhere prominent. I know I will.
