According to The University of Texas System, instructional continuity refers to the capability of an institution of higher education to maintain teaching and learning despite a disruptive event or set of circumstances, or the capacity to rapidly resume teaching and learning after a disruptive event.
The CoFA Instructional Continuity and Innovation (ICI) team supports instructors and administrators in their efforts to further best practices for instructional continuity and innovation in the College of Fine Arts.
