The academic leadership subgroups of the PRTF developed two models for teaching and learning for the 2020-21 academic year: Place-Based Teaching & Learning and Virtual Parallel.
Virtual Parallel is not a separate distance or online learning program, but rather remote access to on-campus classroom instruction. Virtual Parallel students will Zoom into the classroom experience, track assignments, and complete assessments remotely. All students will have access to teachers for individual interaction and/or small group meetings.
Both models deliver a safe and robust curricular program to our students. We will continue to refine these models during the academic year, reflecting on and modifying our learning options regularly.
