Wednesday, Oct. 21, at noon, via Zoom
This week’s Pandemic PD session hosted by the Malone Center for Excellence in Teaching will give you a tour of the Malone Center’s newest innovative teaching space — the Go2 Learning Studio, which is located in Wills Hall, room G2. This technology-enhanced classroom includes the University’s premium technology to facilitate log-in/drop-in participation by students as well as two additional monitors, an Aquos Board interactive touchscreen display and modular classroom furniture to facilitate a variety of unique teaching strategies. We will also use this opportunity to explain the benefits and utility of premium classroom technology, which is available in more than 15 instructional spaces across campus.

Saturday, Oct. 24, meet at 10 a.m., UMOM
The Mini-ride is designed to accommodate riders of all ages and skill levels. We meet in front of University of Montevallo on Main (UMOM) and bike down to Orr Park. There, we will do as many laps as the group likes and will head to La Conchita’s on Main Street for popsicles — our treat! If you would like to borrow a bike for the ride, contact ValloCycle at email@example.com.
Flu Vaccine Clinic
Wednesday, Oct. 28, 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Farmer Hall Meeting Room
Student Health Services will host a flu vaccine clinic for UM students, faculty, staff, family members and members of the community in the Farmer Hall meeting room.
Attendees must bring their health insurance card. Masks must be worn and social distancing guidelines must be adhered to at the clinic. The cost of the vaccine with no health insurance is $25 for UM students and employees who present their UM ID card, and $30 for family members and members of the community. The vaccine is available at NO COST to insured individuals.
Flu clinic participants should print and fill out a vaccination form and bring it with them to the clinic. Forms are available here.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, influenza vaccination will be especially important this upcoming flu season to reduce the impact of respiratory illnesses in the population and resulting burdens on the health care system during the COVID-19 pandemic. Because COVID-19 and the flu share many symptoms, individuals who display flu-like symptoms may be required to quarantine until they receive a negative COVID-19 test. Getting a flu vaccine mitigates this by helping to prevent the onset of symptoms due to the flu.
ValloCycle Witch’s Ride
Thursday, Oct. 29, meet at 5:30 p.m., UMOM
The Witch’s Ride is ValloCycle’s glow ride with a spooky twist. Come dressed in a bike-safe costume and decorate your bike with lights. We also have bike lights to lend out for the ride. We meet in front of UMOM, the ride is approximately five miles through town. We stay off of major roads and no one is left behind. We will again end at La Conchita’s for popsicles on us! If you would like to borrow a bike for the ride, contact ValloCycle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
