The deadline for PACT is 7/15.
Summer classes will be offered only in an online format until at least Aug. 1.
There will be very limited on-campus exceptions for students in immediately critical non-credit and credit workforce programs such as advanced manufacturing, electro-mechanical maintenance technology and non-credit healthcare careers programs. Hands-on components of summer lab classes will be scheduled after the online lecture portion of the classes run, either after Aug. 1, or in condensed sessions at the start of fall semester. This is subject to change and dependent upon the status of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tunxis faculty and staff have updated our fall ’20 course offerings to reflect the safest and most effective way to deliver our quality educational opportunities. The different delivery methods currently noted on our course schedule include:
- TRAD (Traditional): These courses will be delivered on campus at a specific time, place, and location. The use of Blackboard will occur from the start of the course in case a campus shutdown has to occur.
- ONLN (Online): All instruction and assessment is delivered asynchronously through Blackboard—often in conjunction with publisher-based content. These courses include discussion boards, assignments, projects, assessments, etc. However, courses designated as “Online with Classroom Component” (OLCR) may require an on-ground orientation and/or proctored assessments, although all instruction must be online/asynchronous.
- LRON (Live/Remote Online Courses): Live sessions are held (synchronous) at specified times using Teams/ Webex and involve the use of Blackboard.
- Hybrid: This type of course delivery includes onsite and online instruction (combination of 1 and 2 or 1 and 3 above) with a focus on scheduling class sessions on campus. .
Please be assured that we have everyone’s safety first and foremost in our minds. As this pandemic subsides, we will begin to have more individuals and activities on our campus.
