Transition to Remote Teaching Monday, March 16th: Part-time Faculty


March 14, 2020

From Susan Fournier, Allen Questrom Professor & Dean

As per recent memos from the President, Provost, and Dean, we are entering new territory as of Monday 8am with all classes migrating to remote delivery during typical scheduled time slots. To maintain quality and allow consistency of delivery and tech support, all Questrom faculty will use the Zoom platform for student class engagement. Although familiar, Echo capture is not a viable alternative, especially in situations that use the blackboard. Nor does prerecording serve our goals to deliver substitutes for the in-class experiences we are replacing.
I write to you as a special and much-respected class of faculty likely in need of extra support as you enter into this unfamiliar territory.
Please work with your department chairs to resolve your remote teaching transition plans and guarantee your readiness for teaching in this venue. Chairs will pull in our excellent IT staff as appropriate; they have assembled a suite of effective training materials in person and online. Further if you come in to teach your class, we can provide support during your first classes to help you assimilate to the new platform “live.”
This is a learning curve for everyone. We acknowledge a tough transition in our early classes. But we are Questrom. We will ramp up, get better every day, and get this done.
We very much appreciate and respect the challenges this creates for you, especially as you navigate rich professional careers. Our commitment is to help you achieve your readiness while also meeting our shared goal of putting the student first in this pivotal time.
