What is

Resilient Pedagogy

Resilient pedagogy is a course design strategy that makes classes, assignments, and assessments as resistant to disruption as possible. Regardless of where classes are taught—online, in-person, or blended—the idea of resilient pedagogy argues that instructors should be designing their course only one time and accomodate all of these modalities.

Resilient pedagogy refers to an instructional design model that is more efficient for faculty because it requires only one curriculum design to work in all course modalities. This way, instructors can pre-plan opportunities for student engagement. With resilient pedagogy, instructors focus their efforts on identifying the activities and interactions that support active learning and finding ways to make these work regardless of where the learning takes place.
