Good Afternoon BC Family. Hi Fidel!!
Clarissa

Good Afternoon everyone!

Are fall classes being turned into 8 week sessions instead of full semesters?
Andrea Thorson
30:50
No, each dean is communicating with their faculty through this process.
Dana Heins-Gelder
31:28
In Behavioral Sciences we are still doing full semesters, but converting to hybrid and/or online. @beth
Andrea Thorson
32:09
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
33:45
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?
Erica Menchaca
34:43
Or for faculty who are high risk?
nickstrobel
34:44
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.
Jacy Hill

Whoot Carla!!!! Go BC Nursing!
Lesley Bonds
36:12
@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.
Sandy Davis

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.
Christopher Glaser
38:30
@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.
Cynthia Quintanilla
38:51
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.

@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.
Lesley Bonds
40:00
@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.
Michelle Pena
40:03

I had to actually switch work areas at home, and having two people working from home on Zoom has been interesting.
Christopher Glaser
48:39
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!

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!
Kim Arbolante
59:45
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.

@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.

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.
