President Marc C. Conner and Barbara Reyes-Conner

Skidmore College holds retirement and retirees in great honor.  Retirement is a major stage in one’s life, filled with its own challenges and opportunities.  In retirement, one’s relationship to the College changes, but it does not weaken.  Skidmore continues to welcome the views, perspectives, and counsel of its retirees, and of course your participation in the intellectual and cultural life of the College always continues.  If you are just beginning to plan for retirement, we hope the resources offered on this website will help with that process of discernment and planning.  If you have already entered into retirement, please stay in touch and maintain your relationship with Skidmore both through virtual/distance opportunities and through in-person events and activities.  We warmly invite you to attend any of the events that are featured here—or any campus event that happens to be of interest.  As a Skidmore retiree, you will always be a part of the Skidmore family. So please do stay connected!

Adventures and Experiences in Virtual Teaching
Friday, March 19
5:00 p.m.
Virtual - Zoom

Sarah Sweeney (Art) will moderate a faculty panel presenting a variety of approaches to on-line teaching across a range of disciplines.  When in the summer of 2020 it became clear that COVID-19 would profoundly affect how Skidmore could deliver the curriculum, a multi-disciplinary faculty group of ‘Innovation Coordinators’ worked closely with other faculty to imagine new possibilities of teaching in a hybrid mode or remotely using Zoom.  Some of the leaders in this experiment will discuss the challenges, successes, and shortcomings they faced and how the students responded.  Panelists include: Bernardo Ramírez-Ríos (Anthropology), Jason Ohlberg (Dance), Winston Grady-Willis (Black Studies) and Jennifer Cholnoky (Geosciences).  

Zoom log-in information will be sent in email to retirees, or contact Terry Diggory; 518-860-0262.
