Dual Delivery Classrooms
Dual Delivery teaching entails teaching classes with some students physically present while some join remotely via a video conferencing tool. This is part of a strategic initiative to support resilient and connected learning spaces post-COVID. DD classrooms at AUC are equipped with state-of-the-art technology allowing remote students to interact with their peers and instructor. The equipment included:
- Array ceiling microphone, high-definition video camera, and a large LED screen enable remote students to hear, see and interact with those in the classroom.
- Interactive podium with a touch screen for digital writing and a document camera
During the last academic year (AY 2021/2022), 86 faculty members and 3650+ students used DD classrooms, and more than 150 faculty received pedagogical and technical training. CLT, in collaboration with the Office of Academic and Campus Technology Support Services (ACTSS), delivered a self-paced online module introducing faculty to dual delivery pedagogy, and technology, preparing them to teach in a dual mode. CLT and ACTSS assessed the experience via surveys, classroom visits, and meetings with faculty and teaching assistants.
