7 questions and answers on Arrival protocols for fall 2020.

Q: Will the semester’s format change?

A: Yes. In-person classes will run Aug. 31 through Nov. 25, stopping for Thanksgiving recess. After that recess, students will complete their semester online with a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning.  

Q; Are professors reimagining the course instruction to ensure student engagement?

A: Yes. We’ve been working with our faculty for the last four months to ensure they are fully prepared to deliver the classes online. Our faculty members have prepared to deliver this experience; they have been trained intensively to understand what tools are available to them and how to deploy these tools.

Q: Do we have the technological capacity to deliver engaging remote instruction?

A: Yes. We do and we can.   

Q: How will learning go hybrid?

A: All study materials — lectures, notes, handouts, assignments — will be online. But students will meet at least once a week with their professors for face-to-face discussion, problem solving, question-and-answer exchange and other activities. Most 100-level classes will be held in this format. Many office hours will be conducted with videoconferencing technology such as Zoom or GoToMeeting. All CDC safety protocols, including 6-foot physical distancing and face mask wearing, will be followed in face-to-face interactions.  

Q: Can you explain the other learning types?

A: Yes.  — Remote: All materials will be online and the class will meet virtually at set times for lectures, discussions, question-and-answer sessions and synchronous classes —  Online: All work will be online. Although there will be no preset class times, students will have to meet assignment deadlines. —  Blended: Students who live on campus will have a face-to-face component; students living at home will work synchronously or asynchronously.  

Q: Will online students have access to on-campus resources?

A: Yes. All student support services, including the Kreitzberg Library, archives, student success office, Academic Achievement Center, Counseling and Wellness Center and International Center will be available electronically.  

Q: Which parts of fall semester learning will be in person? 

A: Labs, supervised clinical placements and studios.
