The University Faculty places the highest priority on the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff. At this time, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we wish to communicate the following.
Faculty and students who feel sick should be encouraged to stay home, and to seek medical attention as appropriate.
All class attendance policies should be suspended until further notice.
All faculty should begin identifying which parts of their courses can easily be moved online, and be prepared for at least two weeks of online teaching.
Gallaudet Technology Services has prepared a guide for online teaching and learning during school disruptions for both faculty and students.
GTS will provide training for online teaching and learning on the following schedule:
March 9-13, 1-6 p.m., Merrill Learning Center, Room B220
March 16-20, 1-6 p.m., Merrill Learning Center, Room B205
March 23-27, 1- 6 p.m., Merrill Learning Center, Room B220
If you have Deaf or hearing interpreters working in your classroom, notify Gallaudet Interpreting Service at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately so they can make appropriate changes.
Faculty who use interpreters will be supported with interpreting and/or faculty mentors to provide content for their online classes.
We wish everyone good health and a safe, enjoyable spring break.
