In the spring of 2020, BCcampus launched the Adapting to COVID-19 website: an online repository for students, staff, and faculty that offers support for mental health concerns, financial relief, safety and personal rights, and the pivot to online learning and teaching. This post is the fourth in a series that highlights the many resources and webinars still available on the site. Check out our earlier posts on the topics of Mental Health, Online Learning and Teaching, and Staying Safe.
