2020-2021 Teaching Resources

As the University of Georgia prepares to welcome students this fall, the Office of Instruction is here to support instructors and has compiled a number of resources for you to lean on. The Center for Teaching and Learning regularly produces teaching resources and will offer workshops throughout the fall to address emerging needs.   

The academic calendar for the Fall Semester remains the same. Classes will begin on Thursday, August 20. In-person instruction will conclude at Thanksgiving Break, with all remaining coursework and final exams moving online following Thanksgiving.
