Dear Colleagues,

Congratulations for adapting to all of the changes this past Spring. I marvel at your resilience and creativity in the midst of such a challenging time for our community.

Last week I met with a handful of our Chapman students to ask them about how their instructors maintained a personal connection to them in the midst of the move to remote teaching.  It was a vigorous conversation, that I would like to share with you:

This past few weeks I have received many (many!) questions about how the Fall semester will work. As you may expect, there are currently more questions than there are answers, but we are chipping away at resolving each concern that is raised. Our largest projects of the moment are the Canvas Course Design training and the HyFlex Classroom Enhancements.  If you haven’t already, I would strongly suggest that you sign up for a Course Design training and soon we will also be sharing more information about our newly-outfitted classrooms.

Please reach out if you have any questions, I am readily available via email or MS Teams.
