We will be considering changes in the future, especially in terms of how we handle late openings; but for now maybe some of these can prove useful. In addition, you should have seen by now the email and the announcements about the additional Saturday library hours (many thanks to our great library staff!!!!).
• Putting lectures on line – You can video a lecture using our one button studio, which is in the library, or using the web cams available from the Teaching Learning Center. Or Joe Oakes has created this video to show you how to use Adobe meeting to set up and record a video lecture.
• If you have a 2 hour or longer class and your normally let your class leave after they complete a quiz or exam, give them an hour for the test, give them a break and then use the remaining time for class.
• Substitute a class session with a reading and written assignment.
• Give a take home exam and use the class period that would have been for the exam for a lecture.
• Give an online exam – the Teaching Learning Center will show you how to do this – all you have to do is show up with your exam as a Word document.
• Distribute notes via email that would normally have accompanied your powerpoints or have extra “email times” that you are available for questions.
• Convert some in class work to homework assignments.
IF YOU CHANGE YOUR GRADING SCHEME YOU MUST FOLLOW THIS POLICY:
Policy 47-20 Basis for Grades:
Grades shall be assigned to individual students on the basis of the instructor's judgment of the student's scholastic achievement as set forth in Section 47-60. The instructor should provide written notification of the basis for grades to students within the first ten calendar days of a semester or its equivalent. Any changes in that basis should likewise be presented to students in writing.
