Current Instruction Modes (effective 2023)
|In-Person||P||All instructional time occurs during face-to-face, synchronous meetings on-campus or another location.|
|Hybrid||HY||Instructional time includes in-person meetings and online meetings/activities which may be synchronous, asynchronous or a combination of both. Students are expected to attend class according to the scheduled modality.|
|Hybrid-Flex (HyFlex)||HF||All synchronous instructional time occurs in-person and online simultaneously. Students can choose to attend synchronous sessions in-person or online. Course may include both synchronous and asynchronous instructional content.|
|Online||WW||All instructional time occurs online as synchronous meetings, asynchronous engagement, or a combination of both.|
|Supervision||S||No class meetings or shared instructional activity. Used for internships, field placements, etc.
Example: Students participating in Teacher Education Internships are supervised and have periodic check-ins with class instructors
|Directed Research||DR||No or very minimal meetings. Used for group research projects with instructor guidance, or for committee guidance for dissertation.
Example: Three students wish to collaborate on a shared research project; they meet periodically with an instructor who supervises their progress and grades the completed work
