COVID-19 Information for Faculty

Remote Teaching Resources

While teaching remotely is a departure from CCA’s learning experience, our department chairs will work with their faculty to facilitate alternative lesson plans that accommodate students’ needs and meet the course learning outcomes for their classes. Faculty may choose to deliver instruction through the use of a variety of tools, such as Zoom or other web-based applications. Please be aware that students in some countries will not have access to G-suite (Google) or certain other applications. More information is coming soon.

COVID-19 Response Faculty Support

Academic Affairs has compiled a number of resources to assist faculty in this transition.

Teaching Lab

We have workshops and resources to help you transition to online teaching. ETS, Instructional Services and the Library, and the Teaching Lab team will be hosting all workshops via Zoom to reduce trips to campus. The Teaching Lab Portal page has more information, and also shows you know which events are happening every day.

Teaching and Learning Online

The CCA Library has many resources and guidance for faculty who need to move classes online and for students transitioning to online learning. Check out this helpful LibGuide to Teaching Online, which includes information on what we offer in terms of technological platforms and what students can use remotely, including from China.

Learning Outcomes

We ask you to consider recalibrating your attendance policies for the remainder of the semester, taking into account flexibility for COVID-19 concerns and possible reduced access during online instruction, while still maintaining course integrity. Unexcused absences are still unexcused; however, we request that faculty be understanding about what constitutes an unexcused absence.

Workplace Guidelines + Wellness Resources

Please visit the Workplace Guidelines During COVID–19 Closure Portal page for information on key policies for our remote work environment, updated paid leave policies, and tips and resources for staying connected while working apart.

CCA’s Employee Assistance Program is available to eligible employees at 800-834-3773 or for help with feelings of stress or anxiety.

Campus Access

Both CCA campuses are closed until further notice. Exceptions include residence-hall access for students who have been approved to remain in student housing, and limited access for employees and students who need to retrieve essential items. Please respect the public health order to stay at home, and do not come to campus unnecessarily.

See the Campus Access Information page for details and information about accessing campus.
