Spring 2021 will require continuing many of our practices from Fall 2020. Even if you are teaching in-person (face-to-face) you may need to teach remote students who are quarantined, delay their return, become ill, or are asked to isolate. You will want to be in a position to be able to adapt to a changing landscape. The hybrid / dual modality format introduces a number of new complexities, challenges, and opportunities for how we teach, and requires some planning and experimentation. Below are some resources to help you plan for your classes:
Faculty Experience with Dual Modality
- Faculty Spotlight on Dual Modality – Rebecca Shakespeare
- Students in the Room and Students on Zoom: Tufts Faculty Experience Dual Modality Instruction
Dual Modality Tips Sheets
- Dual Modality Teaching
- A Checklist for the Hybrid – Dual Modality Classroom
- Dividing Students into Alternating Face-to-Face Groups
- Labs and Hands-On Experiments
You can also find teaching strategies for in-person, hybrid and virtual classrooms (CELT) in the A&S Synchronous Modality Guide and a list of more Virtual Teaching Tips as well as support for using Multi-Modality Classrooms (including updates for spring 2021).
