As you are aware SUNY Brockport is following the direction put forth by the governor to limit density on campus. This means that all courses including lab, studio, and performance courses should immediately transition to alternative delivery (non face-to-face) formats.
Labs, studios, and campus instructional facilities will remain accessible for the reminder of the semester. Please remember we cannot require any student to complete work on campus. On a student by student basis (e.g. a May graduate), instructors may receive specific permission from the Dean to work with students in these spaces. Specific information regarding the process will be forthcoming from your dean’s office.
All off-campus clinical placements and internships may continue provided that the host site allows. Please follow the guidance of your professional organizations, accreditation bodies, and the NY State Education Department.
To assist you with your transition, the campus has created a faculty resource page linked of the SUNY Brockport Coronavirus Information website:
This page includes multiple suggestions, a schedule and registration page for Blackboard 101 and consultations for next week. Please also seek the advice and guidance of your department chair, instructional support team, and colleagues with online teaching experience.
We know you have been getting many questions from your students. The SUNY Brockport Coronavirus Information website (referenced above) also has link to student to a student resource page. Please check these pages frequently as they will continue to be updated in the days and weeks ahead.
I truly appreciate your flexibility, understanding and ongoing support of our students during this difficult time. I know it is not easy, but I am confident that we will work through this as a community.
