This document was created as a resource for those working on developing, implementing, and engaging in remote teaching and learning. One goal of this work is to provide a starting point for transitioning away from emergency online instruction in response to COVID-19 toward increasingly effective remote learning.

This resource is written in plain language to be broadly applicable to professional educators and non-professionals; teams designing remote learning experiences, people supporting at-home learning (mostly parents) and learners. While we do not believe this document provides a single best process for creating and supporting online learning - learning is a deeply contextual process that requires attention to the needs of learners in your context- our hope is that in considering the strategies contained within, grounded in research based principles, you can iteratively improve and support remote learners and learning.
