Spring 2022 Academic Updates
Updated: December 9, 2021
Updated Course Modalities
While we continue to monitor the health of our university community and strive to create as safe an environment as possible, we have been able to achieve a mix of course modalities (face-to-face, hybrid, online) that better supports student success in relation to learning goals and outcomes of particular programs and courses. In addition, we are doing our best to be responsive to increasing student preference for choice and flexibility. As a result, the percentage of face-to-face and hybrid courses has increased, especially at the undergraduate level, from what it was a few semesters ago. However, many options remain available for students who prefer online, or a combination of modalities in the semester.
|F2F - Face-to-Face||Scheduled on campus at set meeting times.|
|HYB - Hybrid||Course will include a combination of online activities and on-campus meeting times.|
|OSM - Online with fixed class meeting times||Course will have one or more scheduled online meetings; no campus attendance required.|
|OWM - Online with fixed class meeting times||Course will have no fixed scheduled class meeting times; no campus attendance required; consult syllabus for specific requirements.|
|ARR||Time and setting to be arranged by instructor and student.|
Next Steps for Support
We know that for some students, face-to-face courses are a priority while for others, online is preferred, and many prefer a mix. We are striving to create a university environment that is as responsive as possible to students’ needs.
