Overview of Instruction Meeting Types
As guidelines for managing the COVID-19 Pandemic evolve, so do we.
We want to bring back the pack in a manner that takes everyone's health into consideration. This means that instruction meeting types for the 2020-2021 academic year have evolved to incorporate both in-person and online components in varying degrees.
- Entirely In-Person Courses: 100% Face-to-Face
- Online Synchronous Courses (online, but you are required to “attend” class online at specified days and times): Remote Scheduled and Hybrid
- Online Asynchronous Courses (online, no specified day and time): Remote Arranged and Online Max
- Combination Courses: Face-to-Face plus Remote Scheduled and Face-to-Face plus Remote Arranged
Face-to-Face plus Remote Scheduled: Courses meet in person at a scheduled time and meet remotely at a scheduled time (instructors may organize successive in-person meetings with sub-groups of students). Classes or seminars, discussion-based, inquiry- or project- based classes, large classes for which scheduled class times can be used for active learning for smaller groups, other lab, studio, internship, or skills-based classes.
Face-to-Face plus Remote Arranged: Courses meet in person at a scheduled time and remote instruction is also offered. Classes or seminars, discussion-based, inquiry- or project- based classes, large classes for which scheduled class times can be used for active learning for smaller groups, other lab, studio, internship, or skills-based classes.
Remote Scheduled: All course components are delivered remotely and some or all regularly scheduled group meetings occur remotely via Zoom, Teams, or another platform. Classes and seminars of any size, discussion-, inquiry-, project- based, classes w/ multiple sections with flexibility.
Remote Arranged: A fully remote course in which all components are delivered remotely and there are no set times for face-to-face or remote meetings. Coursework will be done remotely and your coursework for a given day or week, such as viewing lectures and completing modules, can be completed online within deadlines set by the instructor. Classes or seminars of any size, discussion-based classes, classes w/ multiple sections.
Hybrid is a specially developed remote scheduled course.
Online Max is a specially developed remote arranged course with a $100 course fee to offset development and review costs.The fee has been waived for the 2020-2021 academic year. This is for classes that have traditionally been taught online.
