Key Resources from e-LIS

Other OU Resources for Faculty

Supporting Students in Challenging Times

  • OU Student Resources for Online LearningOffers students a help library to prepare for learning online, main guiding documents such as the Student Guide to Online Learning, a sample online course, and more.
  • OU Resource for Student Immediate Needs. Made with the Dean of Students office, this brief list explains resources and services available for students material and mental health needs. Share with students directly and include in your syllabus and on Moodle.
  • Trauma-Informed Pedagogy acknowledges how traumatic experiences interrupt learning and supports students through these struggles. While faculty cannot be mental health experts, we can create supportive environments that reduce barriers to learning.
  • Ask Students Early On.  While addressing the beginning of the semester, these two similar tips and resources can be used throughout the semester to check in with students.
