COVID-19 Updates for Concurrent Enrollment Courses

As we all prepare to re-open our doors this fall, know that Tompkins Cortland and CollegeNow take to heart the meaning of partnership. We pledge to work with you to assure that your students - our students - have a rewarding educational experience and earn college credit wherever possible. To help guide you, we have prepared an Academic Continuity document that provides an overview of pertinent policies and expectations for CollegeNow courses; this is based upon the academic continuity guidance provided to our campus faculty. We know there is variation in re-opening plans, but this guidance is applicable to all plans or teaching modalities. Please note that some of the guidance is subject to change, depending on changes imposed or allowed) by the Governor, NYSED, or SUNY.

In light of the pandemic, there is some flexibility to adjust activities and assessments provided that students have the opportunity to demonstrate, and the instructor can measure, their meeting of the course's student learning outcomes. This is an opportunity to focus on the key concepts or skills students must understand or demonstrate, streamlining activities and assignments to what is necessary. For those few courses that have required final exam (per their master course syllabus, no exceptions have been granted at this time; we will notify instructors of those courses if alternatives to final exams are approved.

We will continue to support instructors with resources for online teaching, both via this Google doc and within the Blackboard organization for each discipline, as well as through our Faculty Liaisons. All library and tutoring services are available remotely for both instructors and students. The library's homepage includes excellent "DIY" guides for research help and other questions. Instructors may email a librarian about conducting a remote research (citation or database) lesson.

Lastly, due to the cancellation of the CollegeNow Conference, we have compiled information on a variety of alternatives to our conference. Please complete this form to report participation in professional development in lieu of live attendance at a TC3 conference or liaison workshop (live attendance/meetings with TC3 or your liaison are tracked in real time without the need for a report from you).
