How is OU keeping classrooms safe?
Under the Safe and Resilient plan, we are working to provide in-person instruction to the greatest extent possible while promoting a safe and secure campus environment. We are actively exploring a number of ways to creatively adapt our instructional model to protect our community and still offer the life-changing in-person OU experience. Here’s what students can expect for their classes when they arrive on campus this fall.
- We are adding new, smaller, in-person sections to many of our freshman-level classes to ensure that students are afforded a highly personal, face-to-face OU learning experience.
- In an effort to facilitate effective social distancing, the class schedule will be extended throughout the day and spread out to accommodate 30-minute windows between classes, rather than the traditional 10-minute break, to limit the number of people in buildings at one time.
- We will also utilize larger classrooms, aiming for 50-75% maximum capacity wherever practical for increased social distancing.
