This week has been challenging. Engineering faculty and staff – and all of you, our students – have been working to transition from in-person teaching and learning to remote options. It hasn’t been easy, but we are off to a good start as we navigate this transition together.
We want to do everything we can to help you. You, our students, are at the very heart of our mission, and our faculty and staff care deeply about your success. Please let us know how things are going in your classes by filling out this short survey so that we can quickly address any issues.
In addition, please reach out if you need help. The College is holding remote office hours. See here for the most up to date schedule and instructions.
As you continue your online studies, you may encounter roadblocks, experience technology issues or find it difficult to keep up with the pace of change.
- Try to be patient with yourself, your classmates and your instructors during this time. Ask for help and clarification.
- Make a plan now to adjust your studying habits – this effort may help you gain some sense of control. This document provides many helpful tips for doing so.
- If you are having technical issues, please make sure your instructor is aware and contact firstname.lastname@example.org for personalized technical support.
- If you are struggling personally, reach out to the CARE Center for support.
We are incredibly proud of your perseverance during these challenging times. We completely trust in your ability to successfully complete the Winter 2020 semester, and are here to offer any support that you may need to achieve this.
Thank you very much for your flexibility and commitment to your studies during these unprecedented circumstances.
