Traditional Face-to-Face or IVC Delivery Modes
Traditional face-to-face classes meet together, in person, at the same time, and in the same classroom. Interactive video conference (IVC classrooms) meet together at the same time in classrooms at USU regional campuses, which connect to each other via the statewide IVC system.
Are you ready to teach face-to-face or IVC?
Make sure and check off each item in the list below before your first class.
- Check box Appropriate safety measures: Stay up-to-date on current classroom safety protocols and teaching lab protocols. Be prepared to follow them and to help your students follow them.
- Check box Know how to get started in your classroom: See the tutorial ongetting started in your classroom for help. Identify your classroom's available technology resources and social distancing caps at the Classroom Information Page. If possible, visit your classroom in person and get familiar with the technology and room setup.
- Check box Be prepared to accommodate remote students: Students may need to self-isolate for health reasons. These students may need to join your class remotely or access class recordings online The guidelines for teaching a Hybrid Face-to-Face class are the most applicable to this situation. Be aware of the competencies for teaching in this format in case it becomes necessary. More information is available on the Classroom Accommodations page.
- Check box Preparation for a quick pivot to remote teaching: Have a contingency plan for sharing your lectures and other content and activities via web broadcast and online methods if needed. The guidelines for teaching a web broadcast class are the most applicable to this situation. Be aware of the competencies for teaching in this format in case it becomes necessary.
Setting Up IVC Classrooms
Limited classroom resources are available, especially at smaller sites. A requestdoes not guarantee a room can be scheduled, but we can work with anyone who needs to connect by involving Webex connections or sending guest links to those who can't attend from a site due to lack of space.
Students should be prepared to be indoors with a small number of other people. They should be familiar with and willing to follow the current classroom safety protocols Those who have concerns about health and safety or are unwilling to follow the safety guidelines will need to make other arrangements with the instructor.
