Target Discussion Questions:
- How do you define asynchronous content? How do we measure the contact hours of asynchronous content or recorded synchronous sessions? Will the recorded synchronous sessions be adequate for students who aren't in the eastern standard time zone?
- Will we be requiring all Zoom and Blackboard Collaborate Ultra sessions to be recorded? Do we still need to record the session if all students are in the classroom on a given day? What do we do if the instructor forgets to record the session?
- What are the plans to help students who don't have the technology they need to attend a class online? If the university adopts a policy of giving priority for financial support to students who have not chosen online classes (on the grounds that students who choose to take online classes have willingly assumed the burden of ensuring that they have adequate technology), does this discriminate against students who might decide that it is unwise to return to campus due to health conditions? Could we consider a technology package that can be given to all FYTP students so we don't run into equity concerns?
- What type of staff support will be needed to keep the campus open on Labor Day and weekend class days?
Has a determination been made concerning the equivalency of face shields to masks?
