Dwayne Saunders from Director of Recreation and Wellness from Elizabeth City State University.
Although this is difficult, I'm enjoying the transition and the learning experiences and being able to share this with the students.
been doing good , staying focused and trying to finish the online semester strong.. its a bit overwhelming with all the work that's stacking up
Director of Intramurals & Recreation , University of the Bahamas. We've been closed for about 3 weeks now and Im starting to struggle at home, working and taking care of my 2 kids. I'm tired of cooking yall!
Staying engaged with our rec family, as well as focusing on my class work.
Hanging in there for the most part. I'm more concerned about high school students who are supposed to graduate this year. I think it's been rough for them because they've worked so hard to get to this moment and it's been ruined.
WHAT!!!!!!! Where the hell do you think you’re going!!
is the Bahamas on national/local lockdown?
We are open and expected to provide services. The division utilizes webex teams. We require staff to provide what their schedule would be and set expectation on digital engagement. Continuing with goal of making us relevant.
At the moment The Bahamas is on complete lockdown, no one can leave their house except for emergencies, even though our total number is cases isn't very high. We're not at 50 yet but we don't have the capacity to deal with a serious outbreak. They're doing total lockdowns in increments so it will be lifted Tuesday for maybe 2 days, then put back in place
TSU currently has student worker, using Basecamp
Anchorage Alaska this will be the last pay period that students will get paid with Admin COVID Leave
did any of you have to terminate your student staff due to the pandemic?
Julie are you guys biweekly or monthly pay period?
Our building went on lockdown three weeks ago, so no staff is allowed including professional and student. We are biweekly. I was able to pay them the prior pay period with the COVID Admin leave as well. We have highest number of Foreign Nationals working on campus in our facility, so I was happy to be allowed to do it.
we pay our students biweekly, the students last check will be May 1
This is the link to our Active Anywhere series that goes out via zoom for our students to participate
Presents an opportunity to still pay our student employees and offer some programs for our student participants
Has anyone experienced any issues using Zoom for virtual fitness classes?
We do daily posts of fitness routines, yoga, mindfulness exercises, weekly challenges. We've had a live exercise session on FB and have been posting the Nirsa trivia night. As well as this week we're starting group online card games like Cards Against Humanity on the website playingcards.io
Good to know! Thanks Ashford!
We are doing mindful coffee session using zoom
student staff have been asked to create LinkedIn Profiles, First Aid Safety Quizzes
my microphone isn’t working. NCCU- ESports tournament, Madden and NBA 2K leagues (self report), all IM staff are working NFHS Basketball Certifications
NFL Trivia, NBA, Trivia, School History Trivia through Kahoot
50% of semester if requested for the refunds or extension depending on when we reopen safely are their options.
Participation is Definitely not as high as we'd usually have with in person activities. and we cant really gauge engagement with the fitness posts, prerecorded videos. We know they're seeing it, but not sure if they're actually doing the fitness activities
Students engagement has increased on our social media pages, but participation has been up and down.
e-sports has participation at NCCU- we have 4 different leagues. It was harder to get them to participate when they were on campus in something virtual.
agreed! it’s very beneficial to switch it up.
