A Note to the NC-SARA Community Regarding COVID-19

Updated by lwilliams@nc-sara.org on Thu, 03/05/2020 - 08:11

NC-SARA wants to ensure that everyone has as much knowledge as possible about COVID-19 (Coronavirus).  We encourage you to follow the guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/index.html and the World Health Organization (WHO) https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019.  We have also included links below to other helpful information posted here with permission from our colleagues at the University Professional and Continuing Education Association (UPCEA), Quality Matters (QM), WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies (WCET), and the Online Learning Consortium (OLC):

UPCEA invites our colleagues tomorrow, Thursday, March 5 at 1 pm ET for an informal chat/information sharing session focused on the impact the Coronavirus (COVID-19) may have on campuses. During this session they will discuss:

  • Shifting campus-based instruction online
  • Travel programs (both to countries with quarantines and those with few or no cases of the virus)
  • Residency programs (planning for programs that have historically attracted international students)
  • Events and conference services (for PCO professionals that have conference centers or other publicly accessible facilities in their portfolio)

To facilitate this discussion UPCEA has curated a list of resources relevant to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Due to the rapidly developing conditions, a few things to keep in mind:
