The University of Michigan-Flint is helping its campus community work and learn remotely in a wide variety of ways. Office of Extended Learning director Nicholas Gaspar and Information Technology Services director Scott Arnst shared an update on support services in a Q&A with University Communications & Marketing.
For example, the Office of Extended Learning (OEL), in conjunction with the Thompson Center for Learning and Teaching, created a checklist to help faculty and staff know what resources are available and those things with which they should familiarize themselves. While Flint Information Technology Services (ITS) developed a remote resource guide.
The Flint campus is also employing technology in other ways to help students, faculty, staff to work remotely:
- Cyber classrooms help to deliver remote instruction at UM-Flint
- Thompson Library continues assistance to campus community during COVID-19
“This is an unprecedented situation for the university and the world,” said Arnst. “We in ITS are here to help in any way that we can, and will continue to strive to make this change to working, teaching, and learning remotely as fulfilling and seamless as possible.”
