Continuity of Teaching and Learning – Faculty Guide


Should the FCC Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) be activated, instructors should prepare for the possibility of migrating their classes online on short notice. In order to make this transition smooth for both instructors and students, Online Learning and Instructional Innovation (OLII) recommends that instructors prepare by planning for this transition of instruction and taking the necessary trainings.

Face-to-Face (Traditional) Courses: Please contact your academic department to confirm that your course will be offered or continue to run in the event of a closure. This will depend on several factors including the hands-on nature of your courses, enrollments, session duration, instructor comfort level with the Learning Management System (LMS) and technology, and other institutional factors.

Online and Hybrid Courses: These course modalities can continue sessions with minimal adaptations in the event of a College closure.
