MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES

The Teaching and Learning Commons strives to curate resources for our instructors to help promote health and wellness for our campus community. Being more informed of the various support services available can make us all better responders should we encounter someone at risk. For example, the WVU CARE Team provides assistance and interventions as referrals are made to help students and the WVU community.

Providing Reasonable Accommodations

Accommodating students who are in quarantine, isolation, or are symptomatic but undiagnosed, is challenging and will be unique to your course and students. “Reasonable accommodations” should be made but those actions will vary by course, activity, and learning outcome. These accommodations should give students the information and assignments necessary to achieve the course goals.

The Teaching and Learning Commons has compiled a few things to take into consideration when evaluating accommodation options. Visit our accommodation page for some ideas on meeting these challenges.

eCampus: Viewing Feedback from your Instructors

Finding Instructor Feedback on eCampus

Instructor feedback is a valuable tool in student learning. Most instructors take the time to craft meaningful responses to student work. But if students cannot access that feedback, or find it easily, the value of this tool is greatly diminished. To spare students any potential frustration of having to search for your input on their assignments in eCampus, consider being proactive and sharing the View Feedback From Instructors training page and/or this video with your students, ideally, at the very beginning of the semester. For students who prefer to read instructions, you can share the transcript.
