Summer 2021 instruction modality
I am writing to share that the modality for summer courses will be remote (i.e. WW or DL modalities). This is one of several updates the University will be making regarding summer activities.
This decision was made in consultation with the deans, in consideration of public health as well as the logistical priority of preparing for the fall semester. We will allow exceptions in limited cases where in-person instruction can be done safely and it is in the best interests of the program and students. Exceptions for in-person instruction will require approval first from the Summer Programs Office under CETL and then by your dean.
The Summer Programs Office under CETL will reach out later this week to engage department heads in the course scheduling process. Last summer we had more than 10,000 enrollments in summer term. We know that summer term provides much needed flexibility for many UConn students and I want to thank those of you who elect to teach in summer for doing so.
In the meantime, I wanted to acknowledge all of the hard work that is happening as we prepare for a fall with more on-campus presence. As noted in a previous communication, we appreciate the flexibility being demonstrated in support of our education mission this fall.
