The current crisis has changed the way we deliver our courses. It should also alter our instructional activities. We need assignments that can’t be completed with a Wikipedia or Google search, and that encourage immersion, engagement, and active processing of information. Our activities should involve research skills, weighing evidence and arguments, critical analysis, and application. In creating your assignments, make sure that your students can complete the activity successfully regardless of their circumstances.  Also, tightly align your activities with your learning objectives.
