Academic Continuity                       

Faculty Resources for Times of Disruption                             


Academic continuity refers to the ability of providing instructional delivery during periods of disruption of normal activities on campus. Hurricanes or other weather conditions, power outages, or health emergencies might result in classes being conducted differently. 

The SCF Librarians can assist faculty by providing resources when working on alternative assignments or ways to deliver instruction.

Please explore the resources below, and if you have questions or suggestions, please contact the SCF Librarians.
