Faculty Resources for Times of Disruption
Academic continuity refers to the ability of providing instructional delivery during periods of disruption of normal activities on campus. Hurricanes or other weather conditions, power outages, or health emergencies might result in classes being conducted differently.
The SCF Librarians can assist faculty by providing resources when working on alternative assignments or ways to deliver instruction.
Please explore the resources below, and if you have questions or suggestions, please contact the SCF Librarians.
TIP: Find databases that might have materials for your classes by opening the "All subjects" drop-down menu and searching by subject
Live workshops in Teams: research help, citation help, and more.
If you have to record a video with instructions, or a series of video lectures to supplement readings, we have resources for you at the SCF Libraries in all campuses:
Record yourself using our Microsoft Hubs or TrueTouch screens to demonstrate something on a big screen or use a digital whiteboard.
The SCF Libraries have computers with Digital Media software (Adobe Creative Cloud.)
Study Room #112 in the Bradenton Campus (Bldg. 3) can be reserved by Faculty to meet with a student. Cleaning protocols and masks are required. Faculty only can reserve this room in our Reservations page.
