Minimizing the Impact of COVID-Related Absences in Your Course

submitted by

In this time of the COVID-19 omicron variant, 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 created some (mostly) universal “Do’s” and “Don’ts” for the classroom that can maintain student learning and minimize any additional work for everybody.
