Emergency Remote Teaching & Learning
The college’s leadership team continues to monitor and follow the guidance from the government’s experts on public health and infectious disease, particularly around coronavirus (COVID-19). This is an evolving situation affecting everyone around the world, and Davidson will adjust our guidelines and actions as the circumstances change.
This webpage is Davidson’s most up-to-date information:
While we hope not to implement a plan for emergency remote teaching, we need to be prepared for the possibility of finishing the semester this way. To that end, we have the following resources for you to use:
Emergency Remote Teaching Resources (from the Library/CTL)
Working Remotely from Home (from T&I)
Student Guide for Learning Remotely
Zoom Best Practices – Avoid Zoombombing! (from T&I)
Remember, your own health and the health of our students is paramount. If you are feeling unwell, please do not hesitate to stay at home and cancel class. In class, remind your students that if they are sick, they should seek help from the Center for Health and Well-Being. Flexibility is crucial in our getting through this COVID-19 situation together.
