First, identify your priorities for the semester. In determining those priorities, it’s best to let your learning goals lead you. What do you want students to know, or to be able to do, by the end of the semester and beyond? Whether or not they reach those goals is far more important than how you help them get there. If you begin by asking yourself, “How do I help my students reach these learning goals?” instead of “How do I do (X activity/assessment) in this teaching modality?”, you will find that you are better able to stay focused on what’s most important in your class and remain flexible in achieving those goals, no matter the challenge.
