of ‘In-person + online’ class
Instruction format (faculty)
- Teach class in-person in assigned classroom during assigned time
- Teach via online platform in real time for students taking class remotely (synchronous) or record lecture and upload video file afterwards (asynchronous) (ZOOM support to be provided)
- Choose between attending class in-person or taking class online
* Neither option will result in any disadvantages to a student’s grade or attendance
- Guidelines for the selecting the ‘Attendance type’ will be provided after the course registration period.
- If all students who take the ‘in-person + online’ class choose the attendance type as ‘online’, it will be shifted to the 100% online class.
- Theory and theory/practical courses with the size of below 50 students can be shifted to online class after the course add/drop period, if registered students rises above 50 students.
- Theory and theory/practical courses with less than 50 registered students may convert to being conducted fully online or face-to-face, or be adjusted to a more efficient instruction method, if: 1) there is common consent between the instructor and students, and 2) the (relevant college/graduate school) dean has approved of the change after consideration of the course type, quality, availability of classrooms.
- For classes that include lab experiments, practice or training that require students to take class in person (requiring uses of university facilities such as experimental or practice equipment), in-person classes may be held during the times notified in advance by the course instructor upon receiving approval from the dean. However, efforts will be made to make accommodations for students whose travel or living conditions restrict their availability to come to campus, or who are at risk of exposure to possible infection, etc.
