Teaching Remotely to Students in the Classroom

The instructor may want to consider:

  • In addition to Zoom, what are the other ways you can use to communicate with students in the classroom? (E.g. you can use Microsoft Teams to make phone calls without using phone numbers);

  • Assigning seats for in-person students;

  • Instructing in-person students to turn off or mute the speakers and mics of personal electronic devices during the lecture;

  • Instructing in-person students not to sign onto Zoom individually, except for group work or discussion (see below)

  • For in-class group discussion, having the group which the remote student is a member of meet on Zoom (breakout rooms) outside the classroom. Their meeting outside the range of the classroom mic helps avoid audio feedback.

  • For student presentations, the presenter(s) standing near one side of the room - within the camera framing range, the class turning to face the presenter(s), and the instructor or a student sharing screen (of the presentation/PowerPoint) on Zoom.
