Spring Break is coming to a close, but few of you have had much of a break. I appreciate all of the work you are putting into moving classes online.
The next few weeks are critical in how your students adjust to the online environment. Try to be as flexible as possible during this transition period. This might include giving your students some leeway with deadlines, if they need it. I urge you to trust your students and yourself as we all find our footing in this environment.
Based on Provost Cangellaris’s email to Deans, Directors, and Department Heads (and Chairs) this morning, LAS provides the following guidelines:
- If absolutely necessary, faculty and staff may come to campus for activities to facilitate continuity of instruction.
- Buildings housing LAS units are currently following Spring Break hours. By Wednesday, these buildings will be locked at all times. Only people with key or swipe card access will be able to enter. If you don’t have access to your home department’s building, please contact Derek Fultz. For access to classrooms in other buildings, you must submit a request via email.
- Until Wednesday, buildings will follow the schedule at this link. The information at this site will be updated frequently, so please check back often if you require specific building access.
- Course instructors may record lectures in select general assignment classrooms equipped for automated lecture capture; this activity must be scheduled via email.
- For all technical support questions, contact your local IT support team, ATLAS, or the Technology Services Help Desk. Also, you can visit Continuing Key University Activities.
- For questions about remote teaching design and implementation, go to the campus or LAS support sites. Or email CITL.
- The campus’s most current technical information and recommendations for teaching online will be updated regularly.
General and specific information for LAS faculty, staff, and students can be found on the college website.
We appreciate everyone’s patience, creativity, and hard work.
