During the Fall 2020 semester, instructors and students should be prepared to move between in-person and online modes of instruction, as opportunities for in-class meetings, social distancing recommendations, and public health concerns can change at any time. Flex@Pitt is an instructional model that accommodates in-person and remote instructors and students. Using this model, instructors are encouraged to flexibly leverage face-to-face class meetings, with opportunities for remote students to participate using video conferencing technology (blended), synchronous online activities (e.g. Zoom sessions), and asynchronous online content (e.g. Panopto videos) as appropriate to the size of their class, availability of suitable classroom space, content, and course structure (e.g., lecture-based, discussion, recitation, project-based, lab, studio). Instructors should also consider their students’ location and access to on-campus class session to determine the appropriate balance of in-class, blended, synchronous, and asynchronous activities.
