Faculty Brief Email Archive


For Faculty who wish to utilize the Incomplete Work Policy we ask that you submit this form to the Registrar’s Office. The form will route to (1) the student to approve the plan for completing the work (2) the Dean associated with the course and (3) to the Registrar’s Office. Once all steps have been completed all involved will get a confirmation email that the steps are completed.

You can find this form on the Faculty Central site under “Teaching”.

Date to submit Incompletes to the Registrar's Office is Wednesday, December 9th.


The CLT will offer a range of options for faculty support as you prepare for Spring 2021, including individual coaching, self-service videos and tutorial articles, live workshops, and drop-in clinics. Watch this space and your calendars for ongoing updates and new events, and check out the following:

  • Spring Resource Overview on the CLT website

  • The CLT’s growing YouTube channel (new content added regularly!)

  • New events on your Champlain Google calendar, including workshops, webinars, and drop-in hours; a list of options is also available here

  • Tutorials on the website
    Note: the tutorial search function does not sort logically, and the newest, most relevant tutorials often appear at the bottom of the results list. Thanks for your patience.

The next CLT event is the first in our What’s the Fix? Clinic series, and will be a multi-topic round-robin where you can drop in to get 1:1 support on the Canvas Gradebook, NameCoach, student engagement in videoconferences, captioning, and other topics. It will be held December 10, 2-4pm. See your calendar for joining information.


Student responses to the IDEA SRI are, not surprisingly, much lower than normal this fall. The deadline for students to complete the IDEA surveys has been extended to midnight (EST) December 9. For tips on boosting student participation, see these Response Rate Guidelines. For a refresher on administering the survey during remote teaching, see these Fall 2020 IDEA Administration Guidelines. Contact Ellen Zeman if you have questions, need help, or would like accommodations: zeman@champlain.edu.
