Hello Program Management colleagues,
Many adult foundational (basic) skills programs and schools want to know what other programs and schools are doing now. Can you share with us what your program or school is doing?
- Teaching entirely at a distance (remotely)?
- Teaching entirely in-person as you have done before the pandemic?
- Using a "pandemic hybrid" model in which students attend in-person, for example two days a week, and remotely and asynchronously the other days? To meet social distancing needs, in this model students in a class are grouped, with each group coming in-person on different days of the week, e.g. a Monday-Wednesday group, a Tuesday-Thursday group, and a (double session) Friday group.
- Using a Flex (HyoerFlex or BlendFlex) model in which students can choose whether or not, and if so how often, to attend class in-person, and where the online option is live streamed synchronously from the classroom?
- Using a different model?
Specifically, what are you doing, and how is it working?
Do you know of a state or national database of the models that adult foundational skills programs or schools are using? Would such a database be useful to you? For example, for K-12 see the School District Responses to COVID-19 Closures database .
Does this K-12 database offer you any ideas that you think are worth trying with your program or school?
