News & Events
Spring Semester, 2021:
- All classes for the spring begin on January 19. All Psychology courses for the spring will be online.
- Most will be Asynchronous“Remote Asynchronous Learning” which means that you will not meet online but will turn in assignments according to the course syllabus provided by the instructor. Asynchronous learning includes any activities where students are participating at different days and times within a broader time frame – watching a video, reading materials, completing an assignment, contributing to a discussion or blog, or taking a quiz. Many elements of an online course are asynchronous and the reason many students take online classes is for that flexibility. There may be scheduled office hours or appointments made where students can meet with the instructor virtually.
- There are some Hybrid – Synchronous with a 1 hour, 15-minute virtual Synchronous meeting once a week, which means that your class will meet virtually on the day and time specified at time of registration. The remainder of the time will be spent completing online assignments.
- Please check your schedule closely to see which platform you have selected. If you select a Hybrid-Synchronous, you must be available to meet on the days and times specified.
