Courses combine regularly scheduled (e.g., weekly) substantial and valuable in-person class components with substantial and valuable online or remote components. For in-person meetings, physical distancing, personal/public hygiene, and preventive measures will apply, including the requirement to wear facial coverings.
NOTE: Most courses will transition to remote or online formats after Thanksgiving break.
What technology do you need?
You may need access to a computer with an internet connection for outside-of-class work.
If you have concerns about access to technology needed for your courses this fall, the Help Desk is the place to begin to discuss your needs.
How can you set yourself up for success?
Actively participate in all in-person meetings and class activities as well as any virtual class meetings and/or online course activities.
Set aside time on a regular basis to complete out of class assignments and activities.
More about success: During Fall 2020, it will be especially important to be proactive and intentional about making connections, as interacting through facial coverings and technology may make it harder to feel connected. In each of your courses, look for opportunities to connect both with your instructor and your classmates. (Remember, everyone wants to be connected!). Consider the following ideas:
Attend office hours with the instructor to discuss ideas from the course and/or to get assistance with your learning. (Note that office hours may be virtual).
Ask your instructor what the best way is to be connected (e.g., email, blackboard, etc).
Consider swapping contact information with other students so you can serve as resources to one another.
Use Zoom and other technologies to connect with other students outside of class. Refer to the Learning Remotely page for additional information and resources.
