Encouraging Messages to Students

Ciao, Hello, Howdy,
I'm sharing an idea and request from Dr. Jami Hornbuckle/COMA that I think will do goodness. Jami is asking for photos of faculty/staff holding up encouraging messages of support for our students. Examples, if you need them;
  • Stay Healthy
  • Be Safe
  • We Miss You
  • We Are Here
  • You Can Do This
  • Eagle Strong
  • Eagles Always Soar

Keep them simple, legible and personal. Send your photos directly to Jami by clicking here.

Let's make this happen!

ACUE's Online Teaching Toolkit

I'm sharing a resource shared with me by Dr. Annie Adams/Faculty Regent. Dr. Adams found this resource and thought it would be helpful for faculty as they transition into "distance ed" mode. The site provides focused and specific information in useful "chunks" that can help the cause. Have a look:

I want to say thanks to Dr. Adams for sharing this resource and am asking all of you to share what you have found, what you are doing and what you think will help as we complete the Spring 2020 semester online.
