Classroom Preparation: Campus, Hybrid, Online
Parkland College faculty share what students can expect from our campus, online, and hybrid classroom environments this fall.
Below are frequently asked questions about the fall 2020 semester.
Instruction will include both online and on-campus options, with on-campus courses delivered as hybrid courses. While course sections will run as currently scheduled, students with campus-based courses will attend some meetings on the campus and complete some coursework online. If a course is listed as on-campus, there will be an on-campus component at the time scheduled.
Social distancing and safety guidelines will be enacted. Students may be divided into small groups for on-campus meetings to allow for social distancing. Courses with larger enrollment may require staggered scheduling for on-campus meetings.
Many on-campus class meetings will end Nov. 20. To minimize the number of on-campus meetings after the Thanksgiving break, many of Parkland College's transfer classes will end their on-campus instructional component by Nov. 20, with the online component continuing through the end of the semester. Career classes that require in-person labs may continue on-campus meetings through the semester's end.
