Vanderbilt’s Center for Teaching offers a wide variety of instructional resources to help support teaching at a distance for all Vanderbilt faculty, both VU-employed and VUMC-employed. These include recommendations for utilizing web-based tools, including Brightspace, to ensure all members of a class can stay connected and engaged.
