The Road Ahead
Are you deliberating about how to best leverage your instructional spaces to accommodate social distancing?
Rickes Associates has been exploring ways to quantify the impacts of social distancing on instruction. We can quickly and efficiently model alternative scheduling scenarios based upon:
- Current classrooms & labs
What are your socially distanced room capacities?
- Scheduling block scenarios
How can you change your scheduling to optimize room use and minimize need for cleaning between classes?
- Split semesters
What is the impact of splitting the semester into two 7-week sections?
- Hybrid instruction
How can you best leverage a combination of on-line and face-to-face instruction?
- Conversion of space to instructional use
Where are the opportunities to press non-instructional space into use?
- Serving select student populations
Lab students only? Freshmen only? Seniors only?
We share your concern in this challenging time. Let’s have a discussion to see how we can support your decision- making.
