​For many students, attending a university is an experience different from what they have done before.  Taking this step in a remote environment can make students feel even more uncertain about what to expect and how to act.  Many departments across the university are involved in addressing this situation, ensuring that students have a positive experience, comfortable and confident in their place on campus.  Representatives from various offices in CSU campuses and the Chancellor's Office will address this topic considering three roles:

The Campus's Role: Introducing Students to the Campus and the Campus to the Students

The Instructors' Role: Building Engagement and Community in a Remote Environment

The Student's Role: Engaging in Synchronous and Asynchronous Communities​

Virtual Workshop

​The Academy of Inquiry Based Learning, directed by Dr. Stan Yoshinobu at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, will offer its summer workshop virtually this July. The workshop is designed for faculty new to, or wanting to learn more about, inquiry-based learning. Faculty from two-year colleges and primarily undergraduate institutions are the target audience, although all interested faculty are welcome. Non-tenure track faculty are also encouraged to attend this virtual workshop. Two days (Monday and Wednesday)will involve synchronous learning, and the two other days (Tuesday and Thursday) will be devoted mostly to individual work time with check ins. The Academy has been offering workshops in several US cities with funding from the National Science Foundation for many years now. The workshops bring faculty from many institutions and many levels together for inquiry-driven, transformative professional learning.​
