An unfortunate reality of navigating the COVID-19 pandemic is that a public health official may notify you that you are positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus or that you have been near someone who is positive for the virus. This will require that you either isolate or quarantine. Understanding what these terms mean, and how to be prepared for them, will go a long way in easing anxiety and making it as comfortable of a process as possible.

The final exam period is December 15-18, 2020. See final exam schedule for Fall 2020. Classes delivered synchronously are expected to meet during the regularly scheduled final exam period, as they do during any typical semester. However, faculty members who normally administer proctored, timed examinations may want to consider alternative culminating assessments to collect/discuss/debrief during the exam period if a timed, proctored exam is no longer an appropriate way to conclude the semester.  This session will allow participants to brainstorm, ask questions, raise concerns about final exams.   Issues raised will help campus partners support faculty.

As mid-terms are upon us and as final exams are less than 2 months away, some instructors have expressed concern about the integrity of their exams and assessments with the absence of in-person proctored environments. Lockdown browsers and online proctoring solutions are expensive, have technical challenges, and could compromise equity. Are you looking for ideas to completely alter your assessment strategy? Are you looking for ways to take advantage of features in Sakai or Zoom? The format of this will be an open dialog where people can share their questions and ideas with each other and identify areas for follow-up.

Dear Ithaca College Community,

On Thursday, October 22, and Friday, October 23, the Ithaca College Board of Trustees met virtually for its regular fall meetings. Given the nature of the year we’ve had, trustees have been meeting frequently, either in committee or as a full board, throughout the spring and summer. We were grateful to come together as a full board for our regular October session, and particularly pleased to welcome our new faculty, staff, and student trustees for their first regular meetings: Baruch Whitehead, associate professor of music education; Casey Kendall, director of applications and infrastructure; and politics major and MLK Scholar Kalena Yearwood ’23.
