The Centre for Teaching and Learning has developed the following five FIT pathways for common teaching scenarios.
- FIT pathway – Lab work
- FIT pathway – Lecture
- FIT pathway – Small group (option 1)
- FIT pathway – Small group (option 2)
- FIT pathway – Tutorial
Each pathway highlights how in-person teaching can be moved to a mix of asynchronous and synchronous study. This allows more flexibility around how students and staff engage, and ensures ‘real time’ contact is concentrated at the point where it adds most value to the teaching experience.
These pathways help you to explore ways of breaking down a longer teaching session into smaller segments using the variety of tools available at Oxford. Not all components will be appropriate for your teaching scenario, but they may stimulate thinking around combinations that help solve your particular challenges.
FIT pathways and Canvas templates
In each case, the pathways are supported by templates available in Canvas, helping you more easily set up courses and conveniently link to the tools and resources your students need. Alternatively, the pathways can be used for discussion among course teams and departments, or in conjunction with the support available for FIT through the Teaching Remotely Service Desk. Service desk consultants can provide access to the relevant Canvas courses and templates for your department and ensure that all developments you choose maximise a clear and consistent learning experience for students.
