Can you speak to building community with incoming, new students for next year, in the virtual world?
Sabrina Infante
04:04:26
Yes! As a foreign language teacher I can say that tools like Zoom and other tools can really open the doors of our classrooms and really help connect speakers across the world!
Emily Beck
04:04:35
I’m curious what your recommendations have been or conversations with faculty about synchronous vs. asynchronous distance learning, especially while thinking about equity (some people have kids, need to work, care for family members, don’t have internet access all the time, etc)

be sure to ask the fall 1st yr. students who will have a wide variety of virtual learning experiences from their senior HS springs and probably have some good recommendations of what worked.
Margaret Vecchio-Smith
04:13:27
Did the academic tutoring / writing programs continue to operate?
Laurie Kramer
04:21:05
I've read that there will be an increase nationally in students taking gap years before heading to college. Does Smith expect to see this among firt-years?
Wendy Lutter
04:24:22
Hi, current student Paige again, I know this will not be an issue with just first years! The majority of my friends at least are strongly considering gap years or at least deferring a semester if we are not in person or at least allowed on campus :)
Margaret Bresnahan
04:24:44
Great insight Paige, thank you!
Emily Beck
04:25:10
Paige, you can unmute yourself and mention that, if you want!
Barbara Lindeke
04:25:12
hi Margaret.
Margaret Bresnahan
04:27:38
Is Smith considering tuition discounts for students solely doing online learning?
Margaret Vecchio-Smith
04:27:49
I am expecting that we will have this problem with our incoming kindergarten class too ;)
Melanie Kiihn
04:30:37
are the applications other than zoom you are looking at?
peggy
04:30:38
how does Smith provide science labs remotely?
Jennifer Whittaker
04:30:50
thank you for sharing your perspectives Samantha!
Barbara Lindeke
04:31:03
having a glass of wine!
Jennifer Whittaker
04:32:50
