Uh oh, it’s a snow day, what do you do????
I wish I would have known this. The guidelines are very specific for the amount of class and contact time and we all design our syllabus to adhere to the guidelines set forth by the college and then an unexpected snowstorm and the QC campus is closed. What do you do? I always try to anticipate at least one snow day during the semester. I will create an alternate assignment based on the syllabus and post it to Bb. Today in the 21st century we have the ability to create lectures or videos that are engaging (similar to “Flipping the Classroom” and with the assistance of Bb post the videos and an added assignment. I will usually send out an announcement/email and give the students a few extra days to complete the assignment, this way there is no loss of instruction/class time and the students stay on schedule according to the syllabus.
