Gettysburg College is accommodating faculty needs and ensuring a safe and rigorous learning environment for all students.

Remote and hybrid course training
We are offering periodic support to course instructors based on feedback from the June Pedagogical Institute (JPI) survey and individual requests. Support will be communicated via Digest posts and a Johnson Center for Creative Teaching and Learning (JCCTL) mailing list. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you did not indicate on the JPI survey that you want to be included to the mailing list. The JCCTL web page will also be regularly updated with a schedule of training and other support, as well as materials from the JPI.
The Middle States Commission, which is our regional accreditor, requires that our remote and residential courses meet the same standards. They must have the equivalent amount of work to a course that meets in-person for four hours per week and have at least eight hours of work outside of class.
IT has acquired cameras to install in classrooms, to accommodate both learning models. If you have questions, please contact email@example.com.
School spirit Zoom background
Use this Gettysburg College branded Zoom background during virtual classes, meetings, and events to show your school spirit. Share it with your students and colleagues, too.
Faculty are encouraged to take advantage of online teaching resources, like Zoom, Moodle, and Screencast-o-Matic that promote social distancing, health, and safety. For example, using Zoom for office hours or using Moodle or another storage/collection site (“Dropbox”) to collect assignments.
If a faculty member exhibits COVID-19 symptoms they should take the steps outlined in the Symptom Monitoring Requirements. If a faculty member tests positive for COVID-19, they will be asked to isolate for 10 days. During that time, they may continue to teach remotely if they feel well enough to do so. If they are not well enough to teach, they make other arrangements based on the individual situation until they can return.
