Instructional Support and Design

The SSW Instructional Support Team provides support, training, consultation, and design services for the School of Social Work. Many instructional resources can be found in the Instructional Faculty Resources Portal , on our Canvas Support Site, and on this page.

For Spring/Summer 2020, we have developed an Online Teaching Guide that we encourage all instructors to complete.

For Fall 2020 course planning, we have created a Hybrid/Online Teaching Toolkitthat we encourage all instructors to review.  

We strongly encourage instructors using Zoom to review the Zoom Guide for SSW Instructors and the central U-M Zoom webpage.
