my students won’t reach out. I gave them most of this week off to regroup and we are going to decide what to do on the weekend.
Hilary Gomes
28:04
I suggest having a weekly due date and in the syllabus say you will allow for late work and extensions. I allow for strikebreaker to submit until the end of the quarter
carolyn brown
28:04
what Kathy P said
chemeneses
28:07
@all I too am experiencing the same ‘challenge’ as Kathy
Luis Carrillo
29:31
emailing students to give them a grade update and if they are below satisfactory (i.e. below 70% etc.) before doing an instructor drop please follow up with students if they 12 units for special programs on campus
Baba Kofi Weusijana
29:57
Thanks Patrick!
Kathryn Maurer
30:08
@Patrick: How are you able to submit final grades within three days of the end of the quarter with that strategy? I can’t fathom the amount of grading that would create?
carolyn brown

Being flexible with due dates (and automatically letting people re-take quizzes) helped me allot during the PG&E blackouts and they are helpful now.
chemeneses
32:03
@all due dates whether we penalize points or not allow us to receive student work to provide ‘timely’ ‘learning-centric’ feedback especially for material involving a sequence of steps progressing toward higher concept knowledge structures
Kathy Perino
32:05
Right on Jennifer.
Patrick Morriss
32:08
@Kathryn: I don't anticipate a flood. Work is coming in as students can complete it. The people who need it use it.
Lisa Slede
32:18
Good point. I support everything that you said!
Sara Cooper
32:31
Thanks for acknowledging the reality for faculty, Jennifer. We care so much and are doing such good work.
Paul Starer
33:16
We could decide as a college to declare this null term and giving all students a passing grade in their classes. Why aren’t we considering that?
Kathryn Maurer
33:28
Thanks everyone - great questions - have to jump over to another call, I look forward to continuing discussions like these
carolyn brown
33:45
@paul. I second this.
Lisa Slede
