Students continue to overwhelmingly share their preference for an in-person learning experience. With that in mind, and in recognizing the pedagogical importance of in-person learning, we will utilize the tools and lessons learned over the past year to support all students and will adapt as needed.
Throughout the global pandemic, we have remained flexible with the understanding that we may need to modify plans based on current trends. Because of the projected increase in the number of students who may be unable to attend in-person classes due to isolation and quarantine requirements, we will be implementing increased flexibility with course delivery to engage and support students.
As indicated in the message from Provost Whitehead dated January 6, faculty members will work collaboratively with chairs/directors and deans to enact short-term changes to course delivery modes when a significant fraction of students in a particular class need to isolate or quarantine. Faculty will clearly communicate any changes to students via BGSU email and Canvas.
