Nominate Your Favorite Educator — University of Louisville Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning 03/30/2020

Thank your professor!
During this crazy time it's more important now than ever to thank your favorite faculty, staff or TA for their hard work! UofL's Faculty Favorite Award is a great way to show your thanks and care. Submit your nomination today. Nomination period closes May 1st. http://louisville.edu/delphi/awards/facultyfavorites/nominate?utm_source=Student+Events&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=TL+Faculty+Favorites

Nominate Your Favorite Educator — University of Louisville Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning The Delphi Center promotes excellence in teaching and learning. Our numerous program areas serve a diverse audience with one common goal: to promote academic and professional growth through education.

For service, you can receive points for completing independent service projects. If you volunteer on your own, make sure to wash your hands and avoid large groups. Email Sophia at [email protected] if you have any other independent volunteer ideas or if you have completed an individual service activity with a selfie. Below are some volunteer ideas from the National Office.

Help the Helpers: Is there someone in your neighborhood who is working in the community during this emergency? Support the people who are supporting you. Call, email, or text them and offer to cut the grass, run errands, or offload other tasks that you can help with.

Virtual Check-Ins: Do you know someone who needs to self-isolate because of illness, age or medical conditions that make it unsafe for them to be out and about? Call them, email them, text them or use video tools like FaceTime, Skype, and other video apps that are available on your phone, tablet or computer. Hearing a friendly voice and knowing that someone cares can make a big difference at this difficult time. In addition to individuals that you know personally, participating in services like Telecare, where you can volunteer to call and check in with older adults, can help out a lot of people in need.

Chalk It Up: Using chalk in an approved area, write notes of encouragement for people walking by. Writing things like “We’re in this together, stay strong, thank you for social distancing, etc.” on the sidewalk in bright, happy colors may brighten someone’s day when they’re on their walk around the block.

Share That Stockpile: Donating time or supplies to an organization in need can be so helpful!

Be Cool to the Schools: Organize and share resources with local educational institutions. For example, The SciTech Institute has created an educational resource page with a great selection of learning aids and activities. You can access it here. Spend some time organizing and emailing resources to parents you know, local schools, or preschools that can send the resources home to parents.

Mental Health Amid Coronavirus - Active Minds 03/26/2020

Penguins toured an aquarium that closed because of coronavirus concerns. The videos were exactly what we needed. 03/20/2020

Making the Most of Self-Quarantine (from Holly Hankin - nscs)
1. Watch wholesome content. Although the news is vital during this trying time, some relief is needed too. There really is nothing better than watching penguins waddle around an empty aquarium, as they explore exhibits. Check out the Shedd Aquarium for daily updates from their penguins, as well as the Field Museum to see Sue explore.

Link: https://www.nbcchicago.com/top-videos-home/sue-explores-field-museum-during-coronavirus-shutdown/2239581/
2. Check out all the new streaming movies and shows – out EARLY. By this I specifically mean Frozen II on Disney Plus. This has been released for our viewing pleasure months ahead of schedule.
3. Group FaceTime. If you had to leave college or simply just aren’t quarantined with others, check out group Facetiming or other ways to virtually see your friend group. You can even watch movies together.
4. Listen to a book or podcast. There are many sites and apps for phones, laptops, or tablets such as Amazon Audible.
Link: https://collegeinfogeek.com/best-audiobooks/
Link: https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/life/entertainment/g28353940/best-podcasts/
5. New language? Try out your skills at learning a new language or brush up on the one you studied on high school. Duolingo is great, FREE app to use – I even use it myself.
6. Tour a museum. Yes, you can get a virtual tour of several museum’s to help your possible boredom.
Link: https://www.travelandleisure.com/attractions/museums-galleries/museums-with-virtual-tours
7. Learn to create neat things. Canva is FREE and now Adobe has offers for Students/Teachers.
Link: https://lifehacker.com/subscribers-can-now-get-two-free-months-of-adobes-creat-1842396082
8. Need a music fix? Many celebrities are now holding online concerts via Instagram daily. John Legend and Chris Martin have already gone, but there are many more to keep an eye out for.
Link: https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop/9335531/coronavirus-quarantine-music-events-online-streams
9. Go outside. Keep your 6-foot distance from others and try to remain out of the public areas. But a nice stroll in your backyard helps. If you cannot do this, I recommend watching Our Planet on Netflix.

Penguins toured an aquarium that closed because of coronavirus concerns. The videos were exactly what we needed. Amid an onslaught of anxiety-provoking news, the inquisitive birds provided a rare moment of joy.
