CTL’s Guide for Adapting to Increases in Student Absences due to COVID-19

submitted by greenj@augsburg.edu

In this time of COVID-19, there will likely be more student absences due to mandated quarantining and/or a positive COVID-19 test, even though a student feels well enough to continue in the class. Although the “best” way to address this situation depends upon the course structure, learning outcomes, and pedagogies used, CTL has put together some (mostly) universal “Do’s” and “Don’ts” that can maintain student learning and minimize any additional work (and stress!) for faculty. Please see the Guidelines linked below. And please don’t hesitate to reach out to any of the CTL Fellows for a personal consultation! If they can’t help you create a possible solution, they can refer you to somebody who can.
