Instructional Continuity

In order to minimize the spread of COVID-19, UH-Clear Lake classes will resume remotely (online or alternative format) beginning March 23.

Since the ways in which we effectively deliver instruction, promote student interactivity, and assess learning may differ in the online environment, our team of instructional designers (IDs) and instructional learning technologists (LTAs) offers several types of support for faculty and students to ensure a smooth transition from face-to-face classes to web-based instruction and learning.

Virtual Office Hours

Join the ID/LTA team for one or more “drop in” web conference sessions in Blackboard Collaborate, specifically to address faculty questions about using Blackboard tools and features to support online teaching and learning. Each session will be hosted by one or more members of the ID team.

Use the following URL to join a session: https://tinyurl.com/vjugdpo. No reservations or appointments are required for these sessions. The schedule is as follows:

  • Monday, 10 - 11 a.m.
  • Tuesday, 1 - 2 p.m.
  • Wednesday, 6 - 7 p.m.
  • Thursday, 10 - 11 a.m.

One-on-One Appointments

Faculty are always welcome to request a personal web conference/virtual appointment with their designated instructional designer. To do so, please contact the Support Center, either via email at supportcenter@uhcl.edu or by telephone at 281.283.2828. A member of the Support Center staff will enter your request into our help ticketing system and your instructional designer will be in touch with you shortly to schedule your appointment.
