Three key messages to amplify
Congratulations to everyone involved in teaching and supporting our students this year. Friday was the final day of classes this semester, and finals begin today. Please amplify these messages with your areas of the university community.
You can be vaccinated at the Union: Starting today (April 26), the university has opened a vaccination site in the Ohio Union to serve students, faculty and staff. Through at least Friday, May 7, vaccinations will be offered Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. in the Performance Hall, which is on the first floor. Appointments can be scheduled through MyChart or by calling the Wexner Medical Center COVID-19 vaccine hotline at 614-688-VAXX; 614-688-8299). Information about the union, Schottenstein Center and other vaccination sites throughout Ohio are listed on the Safe and Healthy vaccination page.
Take a moment to recognize your team. Our community's response to the pandemic has been extraordinary, but that's only true because of the commitment of so many students, faculty and staff. As we near the end of the semester, please accept our thanks — and please share our appreciation with your team.
At noon today (April 26)Using Carmen to Assess Your Program will walk participants through creating outcomes, rubrics and quiz questions that can be embedded into assignments across courses. This workshop is a continuation of the university's annual assessment conference.
At 1 p.m. Thursday (April 29) the last installment of the Documenting Your Teaching series will guide participants through a facilitated writing session around creating focused and effective teaching narratives. This workshop is intended for early career and pre-tenure faculty and will be led by Kay Halasek, director of the Drake Institute.
