I’m starting to get questions from students and a few parents about my classes this coming fall. I’m cannot say anything official or represent KU, but I can tell you that I plan to teach live from the classroom, fully masked while taking appropriate precautions. I will also do my utmost to accommodate those who are concerned about a live classroom situation. Specifically, I am planning to record lectures prior to or during class, hold online exams, and hold online office hours. My projects and homeworks have been online for years and will remain so.
While this is all kind of nuts we are learning we are stronger and more resilient than we thought. When this thing passes we will be a better University and a better community. Some things are going to be different, but our commitment to research and education is invariant over COVID.
