I hope you are all well. I’m writing to provide some additional guidance developed by the Monitoring Core Team regarding courses changing instructional modality. The attached supplement to the Changes in Modality document (also attached) focuses on concerns arising from courses changing modality from synchronous online to asynchronous. In particular, the supplement asks instructors to provide advanced notice to students and support services prior to implementing any changes. Adequate notice will help our staff to accommodate students in your courses.
The supplement does not replace the expectation that instructors wanting to change modality of their courses should submit their requests to Stephen Schmid, firstname.lastname@example.org, for MCT review.
Thank you for reviewing these documents and sharing them with your colleagues.
