Toolkit for Remote Work

Most of us are new to working at home, and almost all of us are new to working there full time. We’ve been sharing ideas for working effectively from home, through training sessions on Zoom, tipsheets and PowerPoints. This is a list of links to the material we’ve gathered so far. Faculty and staff are adding ideas in a Slack channel; we’ll share those here too. And we’ll keep adding to the list as we conduct more training.
