Guide for Remote Learners and International Students

The COVID era has brought significant challenges for remote learners, especially international students. This page offers guidance to faculty on extending resource access to these students.

What Should I do?

Below is a checklist intended to help you prepare for the upcoming semester.

Checklist for Instructors

1. Provide alternate textbooks and required readings that have no restrictions on access (OERs):

Open educational resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use or re-purposing by others.

Checkout our OER guide!


2. Contact the bookstore to ascertain whether required readings are available for remote and international students

(reminder: some print books are not able to ship overseas due to COVID restrictions)


3. Contact Dr Laura Rodríguez Amaya of the Center for International Engagement.

4.  Contact your liaison librarian for help determining if online access can be provided by the library


5. Contact Library Circulation for help with Reserves and very LIMITED digital scanning of reserves materials
