Classes will be a combination of face to face, hybrid and remote instruction. Individual instructors will contact classes with specific information as to class organization. Classrooms, labs and studios have been assigned a new maximum occupancy number which will be posted outside of the room. Additionally, there will be signage to indicate appropriate physical distancing in each room and sanitation supplies to disinfect surfaces. Each teaching space will be equipped with a webcam so that instructors and any student may access the course remotely.
Theatre and Dance Coronavirus Updates and FAQs
As we continue to monitor and work through the unique and unprecedented circumstances surrounding COVID-19 and how the fall 2020 semester will look, I want to assure you that your safety is our highest priority. In addition to the university’s Flashes Safe Eight Principles, our unique and highly interactive programs require additional safety measures that we are addressing with partners across campus and throughout our industries. As new information about COVID -19 continues to develop, we remain flexible to ensure the safety of all members of the School of Theatre and Dance.
Along with safety, we also have an equal commitment to providing valuable and meaningful theatre and dance education and learning experiences in our theatres, classrooms and studios. These solutions and policies will help to create a safe, positive environment for all students.
This comprehensive resource will give you a better understanding of what the fall will look like and it will be updated as decisions are made. Please explore the Q&A dropdowns below and bookmark this page so you can regularly check back for additional updates.
