Sent on behalf of the COE Return to On-site Transition Committee:


Dear Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students:

The Academics Subcommittee of the College of Education Return to On-site Transition Committee has been working closely with campus to provide recommendations for Fall 2020 instruction. Our plans are closely aligned with these Fall 2020 Instruction guidelines from campus, plus those of the Contingency Planning Task Force from June 2, 2020. Next week, the College will release a report from the Academics Subcommittee. It will include recommendations based on surveys of Education faculty with regard to preferred mode of delivery, room capacities, and enrollment numbers. The report will cover:

  • Delivery Modes: including principles based on enrollment for offering courses online only or hybrid (combination of face-to-face and online)
  • Instructional Issues: including recommended practices and summer workshops guidance
  • Building Community: to provide students with the “Illinois Experience”
  • Resources for Instruction
  • Clinical Experiences

The Subcommittee also has developed Appendices with (a) Best Practices, serving as a “living document” for faculty and staff to add ideas, and (b) Student Programming, including some of the organizations and activities vital to the College.

Scheduling and room assignments are being carefully considered and coordinated at the College level.

The complete On-site Transition Committee Report from all subcommittees—including recommendations about Administrative Operations, Research, and Community Engagement—will be released in late June.

Sincerely,

Lisa Monda-Amaya
Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs
