Student Resources

  • The Physics Drop-In Help Center
    As we navigate through the necessary precautions implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we no longer have the option of staffing the Drop In Tutoring Center. Rest assured, we have come up with a creative solution to keep this valuable resource available, albeit in a more course specific fashion.  Instructors will be delivering course content through a means that will be accessible to students at any time. Our plan is to have GEs set up “office hour/Drop in” Zoom session during the normal class meeting times, i.e. during times you would normally attend the course in which you are enrolled. This “flipped” version of the class may require more than one GE to accommodate these (hopefully) large discussion sessions, which may then be broken into Break-out Rooms via Zoom.  We believe this framework will work quite well for students as there is a guarantee that the GE staffing the Drop-In session they attend is well acquainted with the approach taken to the subject material by their instructors. This is somewhat similar, yet different than the tutorials that some courses utilize in that the tutorials are driven by guided group problem solving sessions whereas these sessions are intended to be driven by student inquiry. Of course some Instructors may be planning to utilize the course meeting times for other engagement opportunities, those instructors and GEs will have additional remote office hours available. Stay safe, and WASH YOUR HANDS!
