Dear Tech Family,
Good Thursday morning.
Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards announced earlier this week that the state would spend another two weeks in Phase Two of its reopening plan. This morning, I’m taking just a minute to remind you that you can help stop the spread of COVID-19 by wearing masks, physical distancing, and washing your hands. If we all do those things consistently, we can slow the spread and bring our campus and community back to more normal operations.
During the second summer session, we’ve welcomed a small number of students to campus, and I am proud overall of how they have responded to the challenges we face. I am seeing many masks and adherence to our requirements on distancing. Thank you to these students and the faculty and staff who are helping them practice good health behaviors.
These measures continue to be our best way to deal with the challenge of the coronavirus, so remember to keep practicing them – no matter where you are.
We are also excited about hosting our second Orientation Session this week (virtually) and knowing that we have another great group of freshmen that are committed to be a part of the Tech Family! Thanks to all of our staff who have done an exceptional job of organizing these sessions to get crucial information our to our future students and their parents.
Bridging the Digital Divide
We are entering the final couple of weeks for the University of Louisiana System’s summer enrichment series, and I’d like to continue to recommend our faculty pursue these courses to develop skills in teaching, advising, and mentoring online.
Because the courses lean toward developing skills in our faculty, we will offer faculty members the opportunity to earn up to $500 for completing these courses – $100 per course badge earned for up to five courses. The complete list of courses is available on the ULS website at ulstraining.latech.edu.
Rest assured that we will offer courses for both faculty and staff members in August that are focused on their specific job roles, and we will provide incentives for pursuing those courses as well.
Have a great rest of the week, and thank you for working to create the best environment possible for our students.
