4.21 Zoom Participation Policy

Ordinarily, students are expected to participate in remote format classes with their cameras on, and with their first and last name displayed. Participation in a remote format class should resemble regular in-person participation, which means that students should attend class at the regularly scheduled time, be on time, present, participatory and professional—just as if they were in the classroom. Students should refrain from surfing the web, texting, or otherwise engaging in other activities while joining a class remotely. Faculty may set their own class policies for remote participation, including but not limited to cold calls, class discussion, and professionalism. These expectations equally apply to classes that are entirely remote and to classes that have a mixed modality (e.g. both in-person and remote participants).  

Students with specific accommodation needs around the use of their camera in a remote format class must speak with the Dean of Students.
