CLT TEACHING TIP: MID-TERM FEEDBACK
It is that time in the semester when faculty have an intense amount of grading and students receive significant feedback on their work. Once faculty and students catch their breath, the CLT recommends that faculty ask students for feedback about their course content and delivery. Midterm feedback has a positive impact on teaching and improves end of year student ratings. For more information about midterm feedback or to request a mid-term feedback template, please contact the CLT (email@example.com).
RECIPROCAL BORROWING WITH UVM LIBRARIES
The Champlain College and University of Vermont libraries are happy to be able to continue to offer reciprocal borrowing to our affiliates. The process will look a bit different this year, but the outcome, getting the books you need, remains the same!
Though the UVM library is not physically open to non-affiliates, UVM is offering their outside checkout service to "guests", which includes Champlain affiliates! They are offering "curbside pickup" Monday-Friday from 8 am - 10 am.
To request an item from the UVM library, follow the instructions posted on the Champlain library website.

A Message from Nic Anderson: We have spent the last four weeks assessing the daily ridership on both shuttles and have fielded many concerns around the schedule. Based on this data analysis and comments, effective Tuesday October 6th at 7:30am, we will be changing to:
Servicing ALL stops (Lakeside, 194 Saint Paul Street and Main Campus).
Matching the Weekend Shuttle in terms of route.
Starting at Lakeside at 7:30am and will operate later until 10pm (currently ends at 9:30pm).
Track it like usual at champlain.edu/shuttle or on the 'MyChamplain' app.
Stops at 194 are shown here:
Saint Paul Street (in front of main entrance) picking up to go to Main Campus and dropping off from Lakeside.
Maple Street (corner of building at GMT stop) picking up to go to Lakeside and dropping off from Main Campus.
We understand that these changes will be welcomed by many, but also come with slightly longer wait times between shuttles. We have assessed the data and the costs and feel this change is best at this time. This change will help residential students access their car at Lakeside at any time of day and provide connection between all three locations. We will continue to analyze the ridership and adjust as needed. We will update shuttle web pages asap.
