Leveraging our Guided Pathways Frameworks to Work Through an Emergency Situation - Shared screen with speaker view
Absolutely they did not sign up for this
Students' experiences vary greatly based on their access to technology and the stability of their financial situations.
I also heard about the benefit of innovation
I and science faculty are concerned about heavy lab science courses, especially in the major prep courses for STEM majors. CSU and UC are being understandable this semester, but what if this goes into fall and possibly spring 2021.
There have been many concerns over the outcomes of the courses regarding both grading and learning.
I feel like I am only seeing responses, not all the comments?
Our biggest challenge for students has been faculty assigning all the work missed from the previous weeks and overloading them. Coupled with stress, kids at home, jobs lost, etc.
I find that this generation usually has 2 or more email accounts, that are not maintenance well, they often have over 1,000 unread emails
My students are also struggling with finding normal campus resources, such as the Writing lab and SI tutors
I will say there has been much confusion over impacts of EW (excused withdraw) and whether to elect P/NP
I am still meeting with my class daily via zoom where we run the lecture and students asks questions as I deliver the content of Intermediate Algebra. I find it surprising similar to F2F. My students say the same, but the ones without tech are disadvantaged. The Zoom meetings are recorded and that's the best I can do.I send announcements telling students exactly what they should be doing when they should be doing it.
There was a CCCCO webinar yesterday about EW. Maybe it's posted now?
Most importantly, the impact of EW on financial aid
Should be easily associated with the date it occurred, meaning March 5th and beyond
UCs will not accept the repeated grade though if the student passed the first time, even if locally the collage allows it.
These are such important clarifications for the long term effect of this current situation
Concerned about language that CSU/UCs accepting P/NP in courses not normally allowed to be graded in this manner, yet ONLY for admissions purpsose..Meaning may have other impacts in the future
We received a message from the CSU and the UC advising us that there are some exceptions being made due to our current situation regrading admissions and grades being accepted.
They are accepting them according to the updates due to COVID-19
At LAMC we are still holding our GP/SLO joint Summit to try to engage faculty and support student success as a team.
for Spring only at this time
Great idea for LAMC with GP/SLO joint committee
Good work, keeping the motivation for the GP work is important
Grossmont has extended these deadlines to end of semester, June 1
This flexibility is so key to meeting the needs of faculty and students that are dispersed and trying to complete a semester
Do you feel that targeted communication to other equity groups is also important in this period?
Try to salvage SP20 as much as possible
Maybe do a second early alert, triggered by some low level of participation in a course
I was just in a webinar with CLP, in which Chaffey College shared that they have a live chat box on their main webpage, which has been so helpful to give students immediate answers to questions
a late early alert, so to speak
They also shared that a one-stop-shop HUB for student services is available in their Canvas courses. It was very exciting to learn about
Yes - these equity groups have very specific barriers and needs that we can specifically address. Great reminder!
I like that idea of a "late early alert" because students may be at different stages of the semester
Probably going to get worse if we suffer deep staff reductions due to budget devastation
Yes, having alerts that can be utilized throughout the semester can help students get the support they need at any point in the semester.
Is Cranium Café FERPA approved?
Said it is being accepted, but may not be the overall best decision with specific courses
People are concerned about budget as an effect of loss of students. In addition, how can we even understand what to schedule when we often rely heavily on the past year or semester enrollment and waitlist to determine what we will schedule.
I understand the state is providing free accessto Cranium Cafe through June 30, and I believe it's cost is $20k annually going forward
Useful ideas and interactions; thank you all
Scheduling in emergency is more challenging and may need another webinar from the ACC.
I wonder if we should indicate to the CCCCO that continuing Cranium Café would be helpful
