From Gretchen Adams, Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Student Affairs:

Please see the attached handouts from the Provost’s Office. The first handout is an email message from the Provost. The second handout is a checklist for continuity of instruction. They are both important to read.
I want to emphasize to try and be clear in communicating with students. As you might be feeling overwhelmed with changing your instructional format, the students are feeling overwhelmed too and are very anxious. They also take in a lot of misinformation. My office is directing students to listen very closely to their instructor for each course. Please communicate with your students as soon as possible. Here are some important points to keep in mind and should be addressed:

  • Tell the students when your course will be ready for the new format (what date)
  • Whether you have live sessions (synchronous sessions) and if so, that they are held during the regularly scheduled class times
  • The best way to communicate with you and/or their TA (e.g., email, forum, learning system)
  • Be clear about assignment and/or exam changes (including format)
  • How students get help if they are struggling with material
  • Communicate with them often (believe it or not…many will miss you and/or your TA if they saw you frequently face-to-face)

If you have any questions related to course delivery, please consult this page which offers tips for instructional continuity.
If you have questions or concerns not related to course delivery (but student issues), feel free to reach out to my office for assistance.

Thank you all for your patience, coordinated efforts, and professional expertise. AHS is a great team with wonderful students!
