We want to thank you for participating in last week’s survey on teaching using unconventional means. Over 36 hours, 55.5 percent (704) of APUO members participated in our survey. We are grateful for the time you took to complete the survey during this busy time. The survey results will strengthen our position as we continue to negotiate letters of understanding (LOUs) with the Central Administration to ensure our members have all the tools necessary to prepare and deliver quality courses for the Fall 2020 semester.
In particular, we want to thank members for their support as we continue to navigate these uncertain times. Ninety-two percent (92%) of members who participated in the survey said they support the “APUO’s goal of negotiating a collective operational framework for Fall 2020 teaching covering the resources allocated to professors who will accept temporarily teaching using unconventional means (distance and/or online teaching), either entirely or partially.” Our goal is to ensure our members have fair and equitable working conditions and the tools necessary to deliver the University’s educational mandate successfully.
For those of you interested in reviewing the survey results, they can be found here. We thank members for taking the time to provide additional comments, and the APUO is currently reviewing them to further inform our negotiations with the Central Administration.
