Teaching (both in the classroom and remotely) will look very different this fall than it did in the spring semester. LITS has curated a selection of resources to help prepare faculty for the fall semester. In addition, faculty will need multiple opportunities to experiment and practice teaching if they are going to navigate these new approaches and technologies successfully. To facilitate that process, the Classroom Trial Team has created a schedule of available times for faculty to sign up for a first round of experimenting in test spaces. Each faculty requesting a trial will be given approximately 30 minutes to set up and teach in a physically distanced classroom space. The goal of this trial is to arrange classrooms with participant numbers reflecting the space restrictions and remote participants.
This form is for the first round of trials, from July 23 through July 30. We also need participants who are willing to be in-person and remote students (which, incidentally, provides an opportunity to see other instructors before your own test). Subsequent rounds of trials will be scheduled in following weeks, and available rooms may change as the trials progress. Faculty who wish to test remote teaching to a classroom of in-person students also will have that opportunity in future weeks. Please direct any questions you might have to members of the Classroom Trial Team, Heather Brand at, Jennifer Foreman at, and Brad Hersh at
