Teaching In-Person / Classrooms
Planning for Class Sessions
As you plan for the semester, consider these strategies for using in-person class time:
Active Learning Activities | Engagement Strategies. Also review Syllabus guidelines for language related to discussing COIV-19 related attendance questions and other university recommendations and requirements. With the many rapid changes over the past year, you may also want to review these resources for finding ways to discuss complex topics and have difficult conversations with students.
Classroom Seating Charts & Attendance
Unlike the fall semester, you do not need to submit a seating chart electronically to the CETLOE website. However, every instructor teaching in-person classes should still prepare a seating chart for their records during the first-class session. Contact tracing will now be handled off campus and these charts can assist with the contract tracing process. A daily attendance sheet is also recommended.
Please note that the CETLOE site only has charts for classrooms scheduled centrally by the university. If you teach in a laboratory or departmental classroom scheduled by your college or school, please contact your department chair or college for the appropriate seating chart.

Student Self-Reported Attendance in Addition to Classroom Seating Charts
In an effort to facilitate recording attendance in our in-person classes, especially our larger classes, we recommend the use of a brief form to be completed by your students at the start of class. You can create attendance forms using:
Qualtrics or Microsoft Forms or Google.
Voice amplification is available in classrooms should you need it. For rooms that do not have existing voice amplification, voice amplification devices that use a headset and speaker can be picked up from a CATLAB to help you more easily communicate with students in larger rooms.
Many of our largest rooms already have wireless lavalier systems installed. If you teach in one of the following rooms, you will be provided your own lavalier microphone for the semester and will not need a personal voice amplification system.

You will be able to checkout a lavalier microphone belt pack for the semester that can be paired with the units in these spaces. If you are unsure how to pair the microphone, a Learning Environment’s support technician can assist you while you are receiving your unit and/or before your first session inside the classroom.
Voice Amplification Devices & Face Shields
If one or more of your classes falls outside of the classrooms listed above, you will be able to pick up a voice amplification device from a campus Creation and Technology Lab (CATLab) during open hours.

Face shields can also be picked up from any CATLAB.
