Dual modality teaching — with students both physically present in the classroom and attending remotely — will require continuing many of our practices from the 2020-2021 academic year.
Even if you are teaching in-person (face-to-face) you may need to teach remote students who are quarantined, have delayed their return, become ill, or are asked to isolate. You will want to be in a position 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:
