Remote Teaching Special Update Newsletter – Volume 1

Dear colleagues,

As the close of the spring quarter approaches, we wanted to take a moment to recognize the efforts of faculty to quickly transition to remote teaching and to share highlights of lessons learned along the way. This is the first volume in a series intended to share experiences of remote teaching and learning from across campus.

This quarter has been like none other before. Faculty and students are learning from each other how to adapt and address the unique challenges of the current learning environment. Empathy for our students and each other is key. Now more than ever, we are fundamentally members of a single team and we are in this together.

The excellence of the UCI experience endures because of the talent and perseverance of our people. We hope that these shared insights will be valuable as the campus moves forward. Please look for additional articles in the coming weeks.

Regards,

Hal S. Stern
Interim Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor
