Know the expectations for remote courses

Specifically, Academic Council expects that remote courses:
  • Provide live engagement during the scheduled meeting times, including at least 50% planned and structured content delivery or discussion.

  • Provide reasonable ways for students to complete make-up assignments for missed class sessions or participation points without loss of credit.

  • Use Canvas for posting materials, collecting assignments, providing alternatives to lectures/discussions for students who are absent from class, and posting grades.

  • Modify the course expectations as needed so long as learning objectives are met.
