University System of Maryland said remote learning and in-person classes to return in fall

June 1st, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The University System of Maryland, which oversees schools such as the University of Maryland College Park, is giving you a glimpse at how things will change the system’s “new normal” brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.

“Our universities are committed to offering the best academic experience possible for our students, while maintaining health and well-being throughout the system,” said USM Board of Regents Chair Linda Gooden. Remote learning isn’t going anywhere come fall as the system said it’s 12 institutions will provide a hybrid of both online learning and in-person classes.

On the list for in-person learning are studio, laboratory and clinical classes but other courses that can be taught entirely online most likely will be.

Also, some classes may include a mix of students in a classroom and others watching online.

All study abroad classes have been called off for the fall term throughout the system.

Social distancing will also be enforced in classrooms, residence halls and dining halls, according to the system.

Cleaning and disinfecting the campus will be done more frequently.

School start times are also expected to change.

    This is crazy if they will allow students from all over the Mid-Atlantic area to come to Frostburg for the fall semester. These students may bring more of the virus here to Western Md, they not only attend classes, they go out to frequent many different places as well as work in the area. This is a VERY POOR decision made by “supposed” educated folks running the “Higher” level of learning.
