Faculty have identified approximately 150 course sessions that require campus-based instruction for experiential and/or pedagogical reasons. Efforts are under way to evaluate available laboratories and experiential spaces for these courses given density limitations. Faculty also identified approximately 275 course sessions currently scheduled for on campus that are pedagogically appropriate to teach online. Preliminary analysis suggests offering about 50-60 of these course sessions on campus to ensure that we can limit the number of online classes each student will take as below. SUNY Poly undergraduates typically take four 4-credit classes.
- Opportunities for first-year and new transfer residential students to attend on-campus or on-campus versions of dual-modality classes in at least 75% of their courses.
- Opportunities for returning undergraduate students to attend on-campus or on-campus versions of dual-modality classes in at least half of their courses.
- Significant opportunities for on-campus tutorials to supplement synchronous online and asynchronous online classes.
