- The majority of classes with 35 or more students will be assigned one of the three remote-only options, however, a limited number of courses with up to 50 students will be selected for in-person modes of delivery.
In the College, departmental course offerings for the spring are prioritized so classes that are in-person are:
- Classes designed for first-year students to explore a discipline,
- Classes typically taken by seniors so they may have an opportunity to complete a capstone experience, and
- Classes at any level that especially benefit from hands-on, in-person instruction.
- Accommodations for occasional excused absences as per usual in any in-person course will be allowed.
The Modes of Teaching Decision Tree can be used as a tool to help instructors determine the appropriate modes for their courses. View the Modes of Teaching Decision Tree pdf.
