Academic Instruction

ndsu is currently:

  • We are analyzing classrooms and class sizes to determine options for social distancing
  • Evaluating potential adjustments to seating arrangements
  • Acquiring additional technology to enhance instructional flexibility in classrooms, and allow for instances where an individual may need to be isolated to participate in the real-time education experience
  • Examining course and semester schedules to maximize student experiences and minimize risk
