From: Vincent J. Del Casino, Jr., Provost and Senior VP for Academic Affairs

Dear Colleagues,

As we approach the start of the fall semester, we are excited to see the creativity that you have brought to rethinking and redesigning your courses for an online environment. We know that you have been working hard to develop an excellent remote teaching and learning experience for all of our students. They will benefit immensely from your efforts.

In accordance with guidance from the CSU Chancellor’s Office, we are providing additional Online Learning Syllabus Guidance for Fall 2020. A set of FAQs and Resources on remote proctoring and alternate assessments for faculty is also provided. Faculty are encouraged to consider alternate assessments, issues of equity and privacy, and necessary disability accommodations in a virtual environment. 

These documents provide suggested syllabus language on topics such as Zoom privacy and online proctoring. We also encourage you to review the Best Practices information on academic integrity in online courses provided on the Teach Anywhere site. 

Information on these topics is also available for students in the FAQs area of the Learn Anywhere site.
