The Public Health Task Force and the College Move-in Committee have been hard at work to ensure that we prioritize the health and safety of our entire community as we plan to welcome students back to Ithaca for the spring 2021 semester. In the past, we organize in the fall to greet students and their families, and help students move into the residence halls, but the bulk of students will be moving in this spring. There are unique situations requiring increased support to ensure safety and efficiency during this process.

Have you ever wished you had the time, space, and support to sharpen your class assignments or to shift and align your learning objectives and assessments? Have you wondered how technology could help you better create community? Have you considered that your class discussions could be enriched? Have you wanted to learn how inclusive teaching strategies can frame your overall course design? If you are interested in redesigning parts of an existing course or module, or wish to create a new course or module, this opportunity can support you in your work. The Center for Faculty Excellence invites you to join this cross-disciplinary faculty learning community (usually 10-15 members) to engage in an active, collaborative, year-long program with the specific focus on enhancing inclusive teaching and learning through course design and reflection. For more information see the Early Career Excellence Institute program description and application.

The Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE) seeks a cohort of faculty, as well as staff members who have teaching responsibilities (broadly defined), to participate in the 2021 Antiracism Institute. In the Institute we will build on and go beyond work done at IC and in the Ithaca community regarding diversity, inclusion, and equity. We will address racism head on and adopt a non-neutral approach in our pedagogy, curriculum, campus culture, and community. As Ibram X. Kendi states, “The opposite of‘racist’ isn’t ‘not racist.’”

IC's Staff Council is pleased to share the completed Haiku Project in a virtual flip book (yes! a flip book!). We invite you take a moment to indulge and click here: poetry break.  A big, big thank you to all those who have contributed and submitted their words. We do recognize that it's a busy and stressful time, and we sincerely appreciate your participation in this activity.

Readers - if you're working remotely from home, feel free to create a "coffee house" experience - put on a beret hat, sunglasses, and snap your fingers in the air after reading each Haiku.  Enjoy!

Tuesday, November 17
12:10 – 1:05pm

Are you seeking inspiration as you prepare for hybrid teaching in spring? Three faculty members who have developed innovative approaches to remote teaching in the arts will share their work and prompt a conversation about pedagogical ideas. Panelists will include Chrissy Guest (Media Arts, Sciences, and Studies), Ainsley Anderson(Theatre Arts), and Nicholas Walker (Music Performance Studies). Participants need not be faculty from the arts; all will benefit from the conversation.

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.
