  • Faculty Technology Readiness Checklist: a document that faculty preparing to teach a DL course may use as a self-checklist or as a checklist to use with CIT staff to ensure that they are technologically prepared to teach at a distance.
  • Faculty Readiness Form (Departmental DL Record for New Online Instructors): confirmation that the Department Chair and faculty member have reviewed the DL Policy and the faculty member is prepared to teach a DL course.  Please submit to the Vice President of Academic Affairs' office.
