March 23 - Remote Teaching Updates


Dear Emory College faculty and instructors,

We wanted to reach out to you today with a few updates about remote teaching. This is obviously not the ideal way for the semester to play out, but we have full confidence in your abilities to rise to the challenges posed by remote teaching. We are here to support you in this new endeavor.

Support for instructors

Our remote teaching website (http://college.emory.edu/remoteteaching) includes a significant number of resources to help you in this transition to remote teaching. If you run into immediate technical challenges, please email echelp@emory.edu. The Emory College IT Support Team is working to deal with critical issues as quickly as they can.

In addition, Emory College will be hosting drop in office hours for pedagogical issues this week between 12pm and 1pm. You can join the Zoom here ((Meeting ID: 356 613 444) at https://emory.zoom.us/j/356613444.) If you have technical issues you can also ask your questions on this call.

If you have password related issues, please call (404) 727-7777.

Support for students

Please remember that some students may be facing uncertain circumstances involved with relocation, possible quarantines, and unreliable technology and internet access. No student should be penalized for missing synchronous class sessions due to circumstances outside of their control. If you are aware of students who do not have access to a computer or laptop and/or who do not have internet connectivity, please contactoue.advising@emory.edu. If possible, please continue to remain in contact with the student via email as we work towards a solution.

Additionally, if you become aware of students with financial challenges and need extra support, they may request help through the Emory Together Fund by visiting the Campus Life Student Success Programs websiteand clicking on the support link.

Student Contact

If you have any student with whom you are unable to make contact by Wednesday, March 25th, or who falls out of contact (for 3+ days) at any point during the remainder of the term, please complete the Student of Concern Referral form.

We are here to support you. Please do not hesitate to contact us at oue.facultysupport@emory.edu with any non-urgent issues and we’ll respond as quickly as we can.

And one final reminder—don’t forget to hit the record button in Zoom!

Sincerely,

Jason Ciejka, Associate Dean, Office for Undergraduate Education
