LSUA offering students multiple options for coursework
ALEXANDRIA, La. (LSUA) - With so many questions surrounding the conditions of higher education in the fall semester, the Louisiana State University of Alexandria will be offering multiple options for students to complete their coursework. Students will be offered the opportunity to take classes that meet their needs, safety concerns and comfort level.
“It is extremely important that we meet the needs of our students. We know each student has a different comfort level in our current environment and we want to provide options for students,” said Dr. Paul Coreil, LSUA Chancellor. “We also know each student has a different learning style so it is important that we allow them to choose what works best for them and assures their success.”
Course offerings include on-campus, remote, HyFlex and 100 percent online classes.
On-campus classes have been adjusted to ensure small class sizes in larger classrooms. This will assist students and faculty in maintaining proper physical distancing.
Remote learning will consist of classes designed to be taught face-to-face. Lectures will be held on specific days/times, and students are expected to log in to the required video conference and participate during the designated class time. Remote courses offer students the opportunity to have a structured class environment without physically being on campus and engage on a personal level with classmates and faculty.
The HyFlex option is a hybrid between on-campus and remote. Students will rotate between meeting in a classroom and video conference.
“HyFlex courses are a great bridge for students who want a little bit of both on-campus and remote instruction. It is a great option for those students who want that face-to-face interaction but don’t feel extremely comfortable meeting multiple times a week,” said Dr. Abbey Bain, Vice Chancellor for Enrollment and Student Engagement.
LSUA’s 100 percent online courses will occur as normal. Students may log in at their convenience and complete coursework and discussion all online.
