Message to CSUN Faculty

Remote teaching is back for the start of Spring 2022 reminding us that we are still in a pandemic. Whether your reaction to this news was surprise, relief or something else, a range of emotions is expected. And while this might feel like a sequel to our first remote teaching pivot two years ago, we do have a unique advantage because we have been through this before. So know this.

Your FacDev colleagues are still here and empathic to the reality that switching gears again is difficult. And you can count on us to support you and we’re always rooting for you. Our passion is serving you, CSUN faculty, so as you navigate this disruption, know that we care about you. If you need a familiar face on Zoom, email or even phone, we’re here. Our Teaching Through Disruption webpage is relevant for moments like this or anytime there’s a surprise and change in our original teaching plan. We hope this resource, among others, is useful.
