Welcome back from your spring break, which I hope was restful.
As you know from the news, many colleges and universities are adjusting to the needs of containing the coronavirus situation. We will continue to monitor circumstances here at Davidson – the latest information can be found on the college’s website: https://www.davidson.edu/alert/covid-19 .
Your health and the health of our students and staff remain paramount as classes resume Monday. If you are feeling unwell, please do not hesitate to stay home and cancel class. In class, please remind your students that, if they are sick, they also should stay home, that they should seek help from the Center for Health and Well-Being and that they will receive accommodations as appropriate.
We also need to be prepared for the possibility of finishing the semester using remote teaching. To this end, we’ve prepared electronic resources for you to consult:
Emergency Remote Teaching Resources
Working Remotely from Home
The Crosland Center for Teaching and Learning and Library staff also are available for individual consultations; as a reminder, the T&I Help Desk is also located at the circulation desk in the library. If you want a one-stop page for continuing updates on resources for emergency remote teaching, please bookmark this website: https://ctl.davidson.edu/admin/emergency-remote-teaching/
Remember, flexibility is crucial in our getting through this COVID-19 situation together. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me, Fuji Lozada, Lisa Forrest, or any of the other relevant college staff.
