Question posed to Dr. Szymanski or Dr. Coleman
When will faculty be able to convert to remote instruction or distance learning for spring if they don’t feel safe?
Answered from the floor
He noted that the university is just now pivoting to spring considerations and still mapping out where it can be. He added that there’s a collective wisdom that has yet to be developed, and it’s possible that the spring is not too different from the approach to fall. He clarified, too, that the goal is to keep things open and ensure faculty and students are protected, so a timeline is not available yet as the focus is on fall 2020.
Dr. Coleman offered that a best guess for a starting point for the discussion is the fall 2020 model, but it’s early days right now.
