Onsite Learning with Social Distancing

  • Identifying courses where in-person instruction is essential (leading to the identification of students who will be on campus so de-densification scenarios can be developed and course offerings and modalities can be finalized). 
  • Developing recommendations for Online/Blended Learning working groups for training and assisting faculty this summer in structuring their courses for remote, blended and in-person delivery in the fall.
  • Identifying the technology needs for each mode of instructional delivery and identify technology needs for students for effective learning.
  • Identifying impact on undergraduate and graduate education and curriculum approaches to providing a high-quality educational experience.
