An instructional continuity plan will assist you with continuing course delivery in the event of a disruption by minimizing the effects of the disruption. Consistency in the learning experience can continue with the use of the tools in your instructional continuity plan. The pace of the course, the material covered, and learning process can all continue undiminished. While all instructors should have an instructional continuity plan for their courses, each plan will differ due to the nature of the course and requirements of the students and instructor.Here is some information and resources that will help you to develop your own instructional continuity plans:
