Additionally, we are launching a concierge navigation program this summer where a team of LAI personnel will be in direct contact with summer instructors and departments to help them navigate LAI and Instructional Core resources. This is a more intimate response to the needs of departments and instructors that continue to struggle with online learning. The role of the concierges will be to direct instructors and departments to the services we have at LAI to lessen the likelihood of anyone being lost in the process.

The Instructional Continuity Website provides all faculty with access to resources to help with virtual instruction approaches during this fluid learning environment.
