Congratulations to Silke Severmann for receiving the Team Excellence Award


In March 2020, the COVID-19 crisis forced Rutgers University to shift spring 2020 courses, in a mere instant, to remote instruction. During the summer of 2020, Rutgers engaged in an intense effort of planning for a fall semester of remote instruction. Each school was tasked with providing technological and pedagogical resources to its faculty for conversion of existing in-person courses to high-quality remote instruction. A team of faculty members was quickly mobilized, called the Online Mentoring Team. They offered individual instruction to SEBS faculty to help them choose the most appropriate technologies, to help them use the technologies, to help with remote instruction best practices, and to aid in design of remote instruction classes. The team also developed a CANVAS page called the SEBS Online Teaching Toolkit, which is a compendium of the resources at Rutgers to help further with technological and pedagogical course development.
