Classes for Spring 2021 are currently tagged in Homer with the modality indicators you indicated during the schedule planning process. To reduce students’ confusion during a semester in which they might be attending courses across different modalities, faculty should develop written, clearly communicated expectations about your course meeting schedule. This is especially true for classes that will normally meet in person but that may require an occasional online meeting day for small-group work or for classes in which you will need to develop an alternating A-day, B-day in-person schedule as a consequence of room capacities.
All courses are expected to meet at their regularly scheduled times—whether in a classroom or online—as per the schedule posted in HomerConnect. No class meeting times are to be changed in a regular, ongoing way, unless the department chair and Registrar’s office have been informed, with Homer updated, prior to the start of the semester. (This does not apply to the occasional class meeting that is shifted online or to small groups similar to what we might do during a typical, non-COVID semester.)
