Augusta University plans to open in the fall with the intent of providing as much face-to-face instruction as is consistent with a healthy and safe educational environment. Perhaps the most important thing we can share with you at this point is that our values of collegiality and compassion are central to our fall 2020 plans. Faculty are building courses with you in mind, preparing a variety of approaches that will likely evolve as the social environment of your classroom, and our community, continues to evolve over the term.
All classes will be hybrid, with a face-to-face and online component, or fully online. Given the scope of our disciplines and the need for flexible approaches, however, individual faculty will select from a variety of techniques for the most effective delivery of content. Consequently, this term, your schedule is likely to be a little different. Your professors will probably identify days when you are expected to report to their assigned classrooms for face-to-face instruction and have other days when you might be working with content on D2L or collaborating with peers on a project or one of many other outside the classroom activities. You get the idea. No two classes will be exactly the same in terms of when you are online and when you are in person. Reading your syllabus will be more important than ever and your time management skills will come in very handy as you prepare for instruction.
Your continued academic success is the ultimate purpose of all of this activity. We are working diligently behind the scenes to develop a fall schedule that is safe and effective, designed to engage you in your studies and stay on track to graduation. All that being said, below are a few questions we hear from our students at the ASC with some answers.
