Preparing for Spring
For the Spring 2021 semester, Georgia State will continue offering multiple learning models to optimize learning while respecting student and faculty safety within our classroom environments. Blended learning, which will be available in addition to online and in-person learning models, integrates traditional, face-to-face classroom instruction with online anytime, anyplace digital learning. Online class components of a blended course can include different forms of media such as text, audio and video combined with face-to-face, in-person learning within the same course.
Understanding Course Learning Models
Information about identifying the learning model for each of your courses can be found on the Georgia State Ahead website. Make sure you are familiar with the learning model for each of your courses. For blended courses, class groupings that affect which days students will attend in-person classes will be created by the instructor. Instructors will begin making information regarding class groupings and in-person attendance available to students in iCollege or other method beginning Dec.18 and before start of the semester.
