Thanks President Thuy!
Even if it is easier to not take a Final - I do think taking a Final has value. It is nice that it is optional.
Two things for instructors to consider regarding finals (for now or the future): (1) making them project based rather than a traditional summative assessment. (2) Altering the weight the summative assessment has on a students’ grades, especially through a lens of equity.
Prof need to stop locking assignments cus students might want to go back and review it for exams
@ Alica -- horible -- I agree you should have full access while you are registered.
@Olivia, please feel free to ask questions!!!
It’s great to hear about Zoom classes going well.
@ Oliva -- yes having pre-recorded lectures and videos is super to review at will (and over and over and over again)! I hear students though who miss the one on one interactions.
There is still a stigma with seeking help - people of all ages need to know it is okay to need support.
Focus as been a BIG problem. I'm way too sensitive to environment and others sufferings.
Students, you are the reason why we work at Foothill, you are never a bother!

What do you do if you have reached out to a professor and they don’t seem to be understanding?
@Christine - what I’ve had students do is work with me on how to frame your request so you can put it in a way a teacher might understand
Me = Counseling
Yes -- everyone's face should be seen <I think I may be a thwarted actress :)
@ Andre -- people seem to have a hard time seeing an electronic communication as coming from a live person with feelings and needs.
The tech ambassadors are AWESOME!
If you have any questions about Tech Ambassadors, please let me know! I am one myself :)
What is a tech ambsssador ?
@Lucy Tech Ambassadors are a branch of the ambassadors program here at Foothill that help with technical issues on Canvas and our virtual platform. To get in contact with a Tech Ambassador, follow to the student support portal through Canvas and navigate to the virtual tech tab. Afterwards, ask your question!
^^ Email is also a great way to get in contact!
Staff/Faculty: Creating and using a Google Voice number can be helpful for text and phone communication without disseminating your private contact information.
Holistic systems thinking helps reduce the brain fear this double crisis of health and hate has caused.
@Cindy— we as a community need to work on how to address peelings and needs in a virtual environment.
@ Andre -- Yes sometimes the emoticons don't do it!
