Getting Started with Remote Teaching at Peabody

In case of a campus closure, suspension of in-person instruction, or online-designated coursework, JHU and Peabody provide various resources for remote teaching. These same resources provide value any time a faculty member and their students cannot be co-located, or would like to collaborate asynchronously. Faculty will find a number of tools, resources, and techniques that can be adopted to ensure the quality of teaching in situations where physical proximity to students is not possible.

Below you will find guidance relevant to the different modes of teaching and learning that take place at Peabody along with an aggregation of useful links from our colleagues and partners around JHU.

Whether you need to provide resources to your students, convene them for a live online class session, conduct a 1-1 lesson, or assess students remotely, Peabody has a number of tools for your use.
