We recently sent an email detailing the university’s working plan for fall 2020 classroom instruction. Some of the differences in the class options were not completely clear to some of our students. We hope the following information helps clarify options for fall 2020. The bottom line is that we will offer classes in person and online in an effort to provide flexibility for our students in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fall 2020 Class Options
In-Person Classes: Students will attend these classes in person with a requirement to wear a face mask. Seats in these classes have been reduced in number to allow for physical distancing.
Extended Classroom: Since the number of seats in our in-person classes are limited, some classes will have an extended classroom with virtual seats. These classes will be added to the class schedule for fall in the coming days/weeks. Students who enroll in an extended classroom will join the in-person class remotely at the scheduled class time via a livestream. There is no additional fee for those who enroll for a seat in the extended classroom.
100% Online Classes: These classes are offered fully online and are identified on the schedule with “WWW.” These classes have gone through rigorous development for online delivery and allow students the flexibility and convenience of accessing course content at times that are ideal for the individual.
Alternative Instructional Delivery: Some classes originally planned for in-person instruction may be transitioned to alternative instructional delivery using a variety of methods. No additional fee will be assessed for these classes. Students already enrolled in these classes will receive a message regarding any change in class delivery.
Classes will be added and adjusted in the various formats listed for the next few weeks. Students are encouraged to work closely with their academic advisors to build their schedule. Advisors now are available for virtual appointments by emailing email@example.com.
We appreciate the flexibility, determination and understanding of our Broncho community as we continue to respond to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.
