Who can see your viewing activity?
I can't see my audio options and want to make sure that I am muted.
All: Please be sure to look at the "To:" line in chat and select "All panelists and attendees" so everyone can see your message. If you only message panelists the rest of the attendees will not be able to see it.
@Jeff, good news about the new format: you're auto muted :)
Awesome. Thank you!
Can I get that feature for my peeps?
@Jason, the mute? Ha - it's a special license! It helps us ensure security of the meeting.
hi all; hope you are health and staying sane
@Leslie, I figured- but it can be helpful in social situations also. ;-)
So visually, we can only see the speakers ?
@Melissa, everyone who is not a designated panelist is muted and will not have video upon entry. This is a much more secure environment. @Pam, and captioning is much better.
that is great
I’m zooming in from my phone...how can I switch to horizontal view?
Heidi flip your phone sideways
@Heidi you may need to unlock your phone in your settings so that it can switch between landscape and portrait vie
Are the slides posted on the BC COVID19 site?
@Nick, they will be after the webinar, along with the recordings.
Thank you for posting the slides after!
I find the videos posted at https://www.bakersfieldcollege.edu/covid19 but don’t see the slides from past webinars
@Nick, I just pinged the web team to get the slide deck up so check again this evening/tomorrow!
Can you tell us which buildings and classrooms will be open?
@Victoria - hang tight with your supervisor. At this time, financial aid, admissions, counseling, etc. would not be considered essential in-person for the first wave the President just referenced. She is speaking about just 14 instructional sections and those who must be on campus to open those buildings and keep them safe.
@Martha, I'm not sure if you have a specific example but the shared responsibility would mean that anyone who would be on campus for essential activities would have a responsibility for maintaining cleanliness, hand washing, masks, etc. Your supervisor is developing the department-level and office-level protocols. You'll hear an example of what that looks like in a lab setting from Kenward Vaughan in just a few minutes
Just the 14 instructional sections only
“will not be able to enter” how will it be enforced?
This is for summer correct?
@Nick, Cindy will cite the Code of Conduct and related procedures. The disruption would fall in line with the code of conduct and faculty/staff should follow the protocol as usual. @Shelley Castaneda and @Nicky Damania can work with folks on the conduct process
@Gloria, do you mean where to purchase them?
Are we talking about Summer or Fall syllabi?
@ Jennifer yes this is for summer... we will still have some procedures and limited access in the Fall as well
@Gloria, I personally purchased mine on Etsy.
I suspect that A LOT of students do not have a thermometer.
I have the same suspicions, Nick. Hope there’s a way we can help students get thermometers
GO INDUSTRIAL DRAWING!
@Jennifer, both. The summer right now is appx 97% online (subject to change, of course) and fall is still in planning status but many departments are planning ahead for fall. You'll see Kenward's weekly meetings on this slide now
How do we go about getting a thermoscanner for the lab? And has M&O be able to obtain any disinfectant wipes that we will have access to?
@Gloria, I purchased mine at NYLASupply - a vendor based in Los Angeles who sells on Etsy.
@Bernadette, yes - just needs to cover nose and mouth
@Bernadette, I used a bandana for awhile wrapped around two hair ties on the ends to go around my ears :)
And my understanding there will be signage with the symptoms posted. When and where will those be posted? May we have some outside MS 58? MS 54? MS 156?
@Carla Gard: Signage has been posted in key areas since the pandemic was first on BC's radar back in January. We have English and Spanish signs that I'm sure we could have printed from Print Shop should you all need them.
One of my concerns is that my department has serious challenges if we are talking about wearing masks. Playing instruments and singing with a mask......
@jennifer Garrett, maybe face shields instead? Might be a good brainstorming session at a dept meeting?
I purchased several SUPER CUTE masks on Etsy as well! They are comfy and fun--which will make wearing them less miserable! : )
So face shields instead of masks would be accepted?
@Ximena, I think it's a supply issue... masks are more accessible so i'd recommend those as preferred unless absolutely essential to use a face mask instead
face shield instead*
Understood, I was asking because we do have some face shields in the labs so just wanted to know if it was an option.
**If the students are prepared for the lab** this will work
We are brainstorming tomorrow night at our meeting! We would need over 200 face shields in the Fall.
Face shields should be reserved for those labs or courses where students have to work closely to one another
@Kenward: I love that: "If we have issues, we just work them out." I have the hope that there are ways to solve all of our issues. :)
@Heidi, you should work with your dean but public speaking classes are online with speeches happening over Zoom
@Ximena, that sounds like a very reasonable accommodation to me
We will find a way! #BCPerformingArts!
@ Connie we will work on protocols for having shields in areas as needed for the Fall. There are no plans to bring services back this summer
Will there be more MO staff available to refill the dispensers daily or almost daily?
@Nick, these protocols are designed for a massively reduced traffic flow on campus so that M&O is able to handle the workload of refilling while ensuring safety.
@ Cindy that would be a good idea. I don't know how it would work so we need to explore every option! Thank you!
Definitely a team effort -- we got this!
Nice video. Good job. Any chance we can get these wipes in classrooms in fall? :)
How about glasses, goggles, mask, face shield, lab coat microphone, and portable speaker?
Will we get a similar system of rags for cleaning white boards each class?
That was awesome, Zach! It's a great visual. I bet videos like that would be helpful for labs, performing arts classes, etc.
Thank you all! This was great information! Looking forward to next week!
Well done, everyone. That was a great presentation!
