Policies and Procedures
- The tent spaces will be managed by the Office of the Registrar using the 25Live classroom management system. A guide with instructions on how to reserve the tent spaces is attached to this message.
- The tent spaces can be reserved by class schedulers or individual faculty. It is our preference that class schedulers make these reservations so that departments know where their courses are being taught at any given time. However, requests from individual faculty will be accepted and processed.
- We ask faculty to limit their requests to one class session per week per course to maximize the number of classes that can take advantage of this resource. This policy may be relaxed if use of the tents wanes.
- Because the tents are open and divided by a fabric curtain, amplification of audio will not be permitted.
