Innovations in Online Teaching at UIC

In response to the pandemic, the transition to online instruction at UIC has presented numerous challenges to effective delivery of the curriculum, equitable engagement of our students, and the capacity of instructors to navigate new technology necessary to teach remotely. UIC instructors have confronted these challenges in creative and inspiring ways.

This resource is the product of a collaborative, cross-campus effort to share examples of teaching tips, educational technology tools or strategies, as well as lessons learned that helped UIC instructors teach online and interact with students more effectively this fall. Please check out the videos and vignettes below contributed by and for the UIC community.

Additional contributions are welcome on a rolling basis (please email teaching@uic.edu for more information).

In addition to these instructor-generated resources, this site provides links to external resources supporting best online teaching practices.  There is also a link to a form calling for “shout outs” by students who would like to recognize their instructors for effective approaches being used in their classes to support remote learning.
