What is Teaching Through Transitions?

Teaching Through Transitions was created in preparation for the Fall 2021 phased return to campus. This fully online, self-paced and asynchronous course offers resources, activities and discussions to help faculty prepare teaching mindsets for a transitional year in any learning mode. Insights, lessons learned and useful strategies shared in this course have been gathered from the collective experience of our campus teaching community during this period of remote instruction.

In the Teaching through Transitions course, participants will: 

  • explore bichronous, hybrid and hyflex learning modes and how each one impacts teaching and learning; 
  • build on their new expertise in online learning to develop courses that can flex to meet the needs of a transitional time period; 
  • discuss the very real challenges flexible courses can create in terms of faculty and student workload and wellbeing; 
  • and consider solutions that use technology to engage students across learning modes, while gently redistributing the invisible emotional labor of teaching through transitions.

This course remains open as a resource for SF State faculty.

Stipends for faculty completion of CEETL course offerings were made possible through one-time emergency federal funding (CARES and HEERF) for COVID-19. This funding source has now concluded as of 4/25/22. CEETL courses remain available as a resources for the campus community, though stipends for completion will no longer be awarded.
