The PHE articles in this section had been written with the intent to help set up a crisis plan but you will still find valuable reminders for the current situation.

Example Plan

Remote Teaching Resources for Business Continuity

Daniel Stanford, the Director of Faculty Development and Technology Innovation in DePaul University’s Center for Teaching and Learning, developed this growing collection of links to teaching continuity resources posted on US institution websites. The list was initially established based on contributions from members of the Professional and Organizational Development (POD) Network in Higher Education listserv with many additional submissions from other networks.

Campus Planning

The Physical Campus in a Digital World

Michael Haggans, Georgia Institute of Technology

Until recently, the campus and the institution were the same organisms, as shell and snail. The campus was an analog reflection of the institution’s mission and scale. Mission was linked to place and size of place linked to scale. The institution required physical places for all its students, faculty, and staff. This link began to fray in the last decade of the 20th century, as the placeless, non-physical potential of a digital world became more obvious and increasingly functional. What are the physical consequences of these fraying relationships? How must campuses adapt? What remains after the environmental forces of a digital world?

Get a Week’s Worth of Strategic Planning Done in One Day

Erica Eckert, Kent State University

Strategic planners must engage a wide variety of important stakeholders in strategic planning. Fast-paced, high-impact, productive planning retreats can achieve this goal in a one day. We will discuss how we planned and implemented an 8-hour strategic planning retreat with over 100 participants, including faculty, staff, partners, friends, and students. We will cover how we prepared both facilitators and participants, and share specific activities to engage stakeholders in strategic discussions that contribute to innovation solutions and ideas for the strategic plan.
