    Session Description

    Since the beginning of the pandemic, anecdotal evidence suggests that many of our students feel that faculty are giving them too much work, while many faculty feel that they are relaxing requirements. In this session, we will discuss the effects of the additional stress and anxiety in our current learning environment, and how faculty can accommodate our students’ needs and maintain academic rigor in their courses.

    Learning Outcomes

    • Review the Academic Rules and Regulations for time on task for undergraduate and graduate courses.
