Adapt 2020 

The Center for Teaching Excellence and the Office of Distance Education and eLearning created a four-day, Zoom-based program called ADAPT 2020. ADAPT 2020 brings together more than a DOZEN campus offices to help prepare UNCW faculty for the new teaching challenges ahead.

Adapt 2020 Recordings

This event featured 24 sessions on topics that ranged from adapting to new circumstances (like hybrid or socially distanced face-to-face teaching) to understanding how to maximize your teaching in an online environment (through group work, educational technologies, lively discussion boards, and more). In the table below are the recordings from each session.
