@Uri in the informal conversations I am hearing people talk lots about students and about moving away from high stakes exams to multiple options for "showing what you know."
Abbe Herzig
15:58
That's one of the biggest concerns
Abbe Herzig
16:33
UAlbany is allowing students to select S/U or a letter grade
Rachel Levy
16:44
@When I went to Oberlin, you could declare any course Credit/No Entry. Interesting to see it come back in this context.
Haynes Miller
18:20
Also students’ data plan may well get saturated
Abbe Herzig
19:01
It looks like no significant differences.
Abbe Herzig
19:06
They're all tied
Rachel Levy
20:26
The 10 could also be a foundation for the other efforts.

I think we should be thinking about faculty can best support their students’ success and well-being in this new environment
Abbe Herzig
21:45
I second what Uri said. That's the most important thing we can be doing today. IMHO
Haynes Miller
24:37
The shock doctrine can work in our favor
Rachel Levy
24:46
The coordination that Uri is talking about has some potential for equity, according to some of the findings of the Progress through Calculus research. Of course there are also great issues with equity that need to be addressed and might need other structural support elements.
Ron Buckmire
25:45
Are there resources/best practices for faculty teaching in a time of stress on how to support students?
Abbe Herzig
26:10
There are very important equity issues, considering students who may have difficult living situations, limited internet access, etc. Some students have lost their university housing which was paid by financial aid, and have no place to go.
Rachel Levy
26:37
I appreciated Stacy Brown's call to the RUME community to learn from psychologists and social scientists and other partner disciplines about them impacts of stress on teaching/learning.
treisman
26:52
Ron, The Dana Center is working on this at this very moment
Haynes Miller
27:21
https://math.mit.edu/seminars/esme/ was a panel discussion (thanks, Ray and Rick!) about “active learning online. The website contains a number of good links
Paula Talley
27:34
Victor Piercy’s Facebook has resources that supports how to be an online student.
Paula Talley
28:37
For example, one reource https://asuonline.asu.edu/newsroom/online-learning-tips/?fbclid=IwAR2Q_8CfGdSP4PI-XW6UajGV25s2II-QfxiuS-ExLjPRvVglB06uPYRNn0I

Nancy Sattler
35:45
Fred Feldon has been involved in teaching at a distance for many years and givn many presentations at AMATYC
Rachel Levy
37:54
? How can we use TPSE's connections to reach out to and support chairs to support students?
Rachel Levy
38:03
(Also through Prof. Societies)
Rachel Levy
41:26
I'd like to know if there are items not represented in the IP Guide and the MAA Teaching Tidbits Blogpost. Those can both be resources to point to when we have the list.
DaveK
43:07
Haynes - could we have an ESME specifically about the list?
Ron Buckmire
44:22
I can work with SIAM to get them ready for something that can be distributed.
Ron Buckmire
44:40
Anyone have contacts with ASA or INFORMS?
Paula Talley
44:40
ours is intended for the long-term, to help faculty AND DEPARTMENTS design…
Rachel Levy
44:41
I'll help to make the MAA link.
Haynes Miller
45:11
Dave - sure. Also i wanted to say that we shouldn’t forget the great list you showed us last meeting
Ron Buckmire
45:13
And we could ask David Bressoud about using CBMS
Abbe Herzig
46:49
Subgroup: Let's meet tomorrow. I can make any time work, any time zone. Let's move quickly.
Haynes Miller
47:06

Is anybody else happy/relieved that Zoom worked so well under current stress?
Rachel Levy
