Good Afternoon BC Family. Hi Fidel!!
Good Afternoon everyone!
Are fall classes being turned into 8 week sessions instead of full semesters?
No, each dean is communicating with their faculty through this process.
In Behavioral Sciences we are still doing full semesters, but converting to hybrid and/or online. @beth
Your chair and dean will reach out if they haven't already. We recognize each department and program is unique and has unique needs.
Ximena Da Silva Tavares
What are recommendations for Summer/Fall if we have some f2f courses (ie: science labs) and one or more students in the course do not want to attend due to having a compromised immune system?
Or for faculty who are high risk?
One of the POSSIBILITIES mentioned in previous seminars is that we may have to close the campus again in the last half of Fall semester because of a possible upsurge. So how would we structure our face-to-face classes with that in mind? Possible hybrid type with concepts + skills that must be face-to-face and the other concepts+skills that can be done virtually put in the second half. This is ONE possible way. Faculty will undoubtedly find a number of other creative ways.
Whoot Carla!!!! Go BC Nursing!
@Ximena and @Erica, you should work with your dept chair and dean on the details for your specific situation, but I recommend maintaining flexible accommodations for students who need them and I am certain any faculty who do not feel safe returning to a fully face-to-face format have the option to maintain virtual courses.
CARLA - our amazing leader! We are BC nursing!!
We love our Nursing Program <3 Go Carla and Allied Health Team!
The11 entire Nursing is amazing. Proud to work with all of you
Thank you, Sonya! We do need this opportunity to meet as BC. You and all participants (speakers and listeners) are all appreciated!
Carla has worked without end to support the students and find creative solutions that ensured they could still complete! Thank you, Carla. We love and appreciate you.
@nickstrobel: That's a really great point. It might be a great idea to head into Summer and Fall, keeping in mind that, if we open up more (even selectively), we may have to tighten up and close again. Thank you for sharing.
Our Nursing Dept. is amazing! Thank you all for your service during this difficult season. We honor al our Nursing students for their tenacity and service to their community. We Here is how you can change your major.
Yay, We <3 our BC Nursing students!!
So proud of BC Nursing students!! :=)
@Carla Guard: "Clogs On The Ground". I LOVE that! BC students TRULY lead in our healthcare industries here in Bakersfield and in Kern County. It's really a testament to the work in your area that we moved on this quickly.
@Nick @Chris, yes - Gov Newsom included the option to reinstate stay-at-home orders as one of his 6 key parameters in his remarks today. He anticipates the likelihood of a shutdown and discussed the changes schools could expect - keeping physical distancing of 6 feet in the school setting is an expectation, not an option.
This is so awesome! Way to go Nursing Dept.
Very proud of my former A&P students who are now nursing students and working on the front line!
@sciencefaculty. great questions. @Jenniferserrat, plz you get me a zoom meeting with our science faculty this week.
My daughter is a 2nd semester Nursing Student and I am glad to see full support from the department and she will not be behind
BC nursing students and faculty make us all proud!
Thank you BC Nursing!!!

Thank you BC Nursing!
Yea! LORI! You are the best!
Thank You Dean Carla and Professor Mendiola <3
Lori's mug collection is fantastic!
@Lori, you're coffee mugs are AMAZING. As a self-professed collector myself, this makes me happy!
I'm with you Lori!
Grateful for Lori!
Lori = da' best! 8^D
Good pointers, Lori!
My workspace is my rocking chair. Platform rocker I’ve had with me my entire life.
Thanks for these tips Lori!
i have a portable heater as well!
Billie Jo and/or Liz Rozell if you can expound more on the possibilities for Fall semester. Will these decisions be made uniformly?
Lori is the best!! Not to mention the incredible mugs we all look forward to seeing when we meet :)
Is there any way for us to get some of the BC masks?
I had to actually switch work areas at home, and having two people working from home on Zoom has been interesting.
It's so funny that we really don't think about a lot of this stuff at home. But these times really have had to keep us on our toes. Lori has really got it down!
Don't forget Slack!
"Communication is the key." So true...
That is what we do at BC, we adapt!
Slack is really a great tool! It's like a little virtual office. :)
i love Slacking!
lol @ Nicky
@Nicky: Lol, wrong app!
I do need some new slacks...
If I lose my internet connection, I am done. No cell service where I live.
@Craig Hayward: Haha, same.
join us in the Renegade fitness program on line! they are alot of fun for all variety of talents
How do we sign up Nicky?
I'm on my stationary bike right now. Anyone else finding ways to build exercise into their work routine? I'm trying hard to avoid being sedentary.
You did a great job Lori!!
Jo Ellen Barnes
Good job Lori!

@Nicky: second that =)
@Nicky: third that for sure...:)
Great job, Lori!
Lori rocks the casbah!!
Join the Fitness program at:
OMG Thanks for the reminder @nicky I needed it!
it saves me for a bit of movement and breaks the day up nicely.
we also have many events too
Yes, we have three different areas with computers.
I also have several spaces, @Denise. My favorite lately has been the opportunity to sit outside... especially when my dogs are sunbathing. I agree it's all about the frame of mind!
Yes that's what I need. I've been taking little walks throughout the day too since I can still email from my phone while walking, but its not enough. I must burn some calories.
is the fitness program after 5:30?
We also created a BC Themed Escape Room challenge, see if you can figure ou the puzzlehttps://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeuh8zzXWvKk_noADDpGm-QAJOdaZKr7avf8qKfaVtbaUu13w/formResponse
@Denise Mitchell: "A place that you enjoy being in." I love that you pointed that out. That is a concept that has been SUPER helpful for me. It makes the work go by...better.
Nicky-your job is so cool! :-)
Sometimes, my office follows me (via smartphone) when I going walking and film messages to my students.
I love that they are watching you.
the fitness program is:MOndays at 6:30 - Power YogaTuesdays: Noon - Upper BodyWednesday: 6:30 - PolymetricsThursday: Noon - Lower BodyFridays: 4pm Yoga
I thought dogs were afraid of vacuum cleaners.
Great advice Denise!
@Kim, i'm willing to switch if you like! ;)
Yes, Denise is right that the lines between home life and work life have been completely blurred together.
Denise, thank you for acknowledging that it's hard to turn our work off now that it's in our same living space. Burning the candle at both ends is easy to fall into.
Thank you Nicky!
great reminder Denice, we have to remember to care for ourselves and develop routines different than our previous normal
Time blocks and state of mind- great tips. It really is important.
Also, acknowledge the accomplishments you made each day!
Lots and lots trust me. Food Services is still busy
