Public universities have a responsibility to deliver high-quality education safely to a large number of students. Planning effective instructional delivery while minimizing transmission of COVID is a timely, complex example of balancing disparate educational needs. We'll discuss how the University of Massachusetts Amherst, a public flagship university with a large residential population, changed instructional delivery through a process of design, implementation, and evaluation across academics, educational, and residential spaces. Join us to gain insight on our post-pandemic approach, encompassing planning, execution, and monitoring based on public health guidance, institutional needs, physical space, and academic requirements.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Balance learning and safety imperatives by paying close attention to human behavior in a learning environment and determining what data is most actionable and relevant.
  2. Use a public health dashboard to obtain proactive and timely feedback on public health.
  3. Determine which courses require face-to-face, remote, or blended instructional delivery modalities.
  4. Match existing physical assets with essential face-to-face courses and discuss how best to implement public health guidelines in these campus learning environments
