Hi everyone,
We are training our peer tutors to be ready to provide support for students in learning how to get started with Canvas and Zoom, and we’d like you to let students know about some drop-in training sessions we are offering tomorrow, Friday, over Zoom.
Tutors will be shadowing our tech support experts Michel Edibe-Bile and Lewis Thrower as they help your students learn the basics of Zoom and Canvas.
Friday, March 27, 2020 (10 -12 PM and 2-4 PM) “Zoom and Canvas Basics” (Virtual Drop-In).

To sign up for an appointment, fill out this form: Tutoring Center Sign-up

Students can also make an appointment and get help by calling or texting this number: (510) 463-4412

I know this is late notice, so we will be in touch about more sessions for next week once we have worked out the schedule with tutors and figured out how to avoid “zoom-bombing” incidents like the one we had today.

We’re all working to figure this out together, so please feel free to direct any questions or ideas to me or to Lewis Thrower, ([email protected]), the Instructional Assistant for the Student Success Center.

Thanks!
Ian Latta

Tutor Coordinator, English Instructor

Couple of nights ago we saw Christina Anderson’s INKED BABY at CROWDED FIRE and were quite taken by it. For some of us the storytelling left us fascinated yet baffled and for some it validated past events in our country. This kind of validation is so important to witness and perhaps begin a healing process. Check it out and let us know what you think.

So proud of Leigh Rondon-Davis and Kenny S
Who starred in this very important and relevant piece!!

Its always a good idea to tell how former students are making their way in Bay Area theater. Original Ace-Deuce Kristoffer’s hard work is getting recognized more broadly now!!! He’s still with T1; events manager, resident sound designer, and resident stage manager.
To add, he’s just scored his first instructor gig with Brava Theater, teaching sound design to their San Francisco Running Crew students this fall and spring.
The Flick over at Shotgun is doing well and he’s getting mentions in almost all the reviews for sound and projections.
And he was just nominated for outstanding sound design in a play for Cinnabar Theater's The Great God Pan by the Marquee Theater Journalists Association. His first nomination!! What’s really cool is that Kris composed all the transition music for that show!!
Fusion is so proud of our original ace deuce!!! Persistence, a desire to learn and the drive - that’s what it’s all about!!! You go Fusion-Gai!!
