Message to UCLA Instructors from the CEILS Team

During this unprecedented and stressful time, we urge you to embrace an attitude of empathy, understanding, and flexibility with your students, your TAs, and UCLA staff and administration as we work together to best support our community in adjusting our mode of instruction. Please be equitable with your grading practices and consider what alternatives you might provide, flexible in your scheduling of assignments and live zoom sessions, and invest extra time communicating with your students as you prepare your course and being teaching. We will continue to host online events, curate relevant resources, and disseminate important announcements. Please contact us at media@ceils.ucla.edu and let us know how we can support your teaching during this time.

The CEILS team is here to support instructors to adopt evidence-based inclusive teaching practices into your course design and teaching approach. To request a consultation please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/WgtzUcGPq1X8Qw8p7. We will follow-up to schedule a time to meet with you. You can view information about our individual team members here.

If you have a technical question about CCLE or Zoom, please contact your local computing support contact.

UCLA IT has developed a website to provide the most current guides and resources for using Zoom at UCLA.

Need one-on-one help this week or someone to sit in on your first Zoom session? Email lazoomassistance@gmail.com to reach a team of undergraduates standing by to help out. Indicate when you’d like an appointment, and they’ll respond as soon as possible with a Zoom link. Priority is for instructors teaching in the Life and Physical Sciences.

If you have a technical question about CCLE, please contact your department’s  local computing support.
