The P3 Collaboratory is pleased to continue “Teaching Tuesdays,” our summer weekly series centered around best practices for remote instruction and teaching effectiveness.
Next week, we begin a Fall semester unlike any other. Students and faculty are both adjusting to remote learning.Caretakers are juggling simultaneous and conflicting obligations. Many members of our community are dealing with a deepened sense of precarity occasioned by the economic crisis and COVID. We are worried for our students and ourselves . . .
We want to help connect you to the resources you need and provide the RU-N community with the community supports required by these challenging times. Please let us know using this poll how the P3 can assist you with the upcoming semester – how can we help?
Thanks in advance for your feedback, and please know that we are holding on to hope even through these challenging times!
While we work to adapt our offerings to meet campus needs, please explore the following resources:
