Fall 2021 Resources
Supporting Students in the Return to the Classroom
Many students have not been on campus at all since mid-March, 2020. Even 2nd-year students will be "new" to campus in many regards. And all members of the community will be challenged in different ways with a return to in-person, place-bound learning and working. Supporting Students in the Return to the Classroom provides suggestions for you as an instructor to help your students adjust to the return to in-person learning. Included are recommendations for pre-course communications, suggestions for developing your syllabus, ideas for first-class meeting activities, ideas on (re)setting expectations, planning for flexibility, and supporting students. Faculty are also encouraged to review:
- Strategies for teaching to remote students in a traditional classroom created by the IDEAS team
- How do I teach with a face mask? created by the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL)
- Some Useful Tips for the Fall 2021 Classroom created by CNS Undergraduate Education.
