Faculty Lounge

We want to keep you connected, even when you’re working—and teaching—remotely. To facilitate communication, we have set up a Slack workspace just for Columbia faculty. This space will be used for communication between faculty, and provide opportunities for administrators who support faculty to assist with your needs.

What is Slack?

Slack is a communications tool that can replace (or augment) email to help you and your colleagues stay connected and be productive. 

What will we talk about?

Topics could range from the practical and work-related:
#workingfromhome, where faculty can share what works (and what doesn’t) when you’re teaching remotely 

...to the more informal 
#recipes-to-share or #whats-on-my-playlist

How does it work?

A Slack workspace is made up of channels, where groups can communicate in real time. Members of a channel can send messages and share files. The interface looks like a feed. You can use Slack via your Web browser, on a desktop app, or on your mobile device or tablet.
