March 9 GEB3373 Memo

From: Dr. Amanda Phalin, Lecturer

Changes Recommended by University Due to COVID-19: GEB3373: International Business

This afternoon, all faculty received an e-mail stating that, “In response to the evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S., Provost Joe Glover sent a memo to academic deans today recommending that instructors move their courses from face-to-face delivery to an electronic delivery mode effective immediately, wherever possible.”

Since our class is already delivered online, ***no deadlines or work required will change.***

However, a few things will be different:

  1. Students who attend live classes should no longer attend. Do not come to Heavener 150 during Periods 5-6. I am currently working with College of Business tech staff to determine how to deliver lectures to you, specifically whether we can implement live streaming so that you may attend and participate virtually. More information will be forthcoming tomorrow or Wednesday morning.
  2. Office hours for both Dr. Phalin and the TAs will be online only, via Zoom, starting tomorrow, Tuesday, March 10. If you haven’t yet used Zoom, visit UFIT’s Zoom page to get started. Please recall my Zoom office address (Meeting ID 475-391-2414). Your TAs’ Zoom office addresses can be found at the bottom of the Contact Information page.

I will provide everyone with more information as I receive it. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. In the meantime, wash those hands and stay healthy! 🙂
