Fall 2020 Instructional Methods
As a part of The University of Alabama’s Plan for a Return to Full Operations this fall, course delivery methods for some courses have changed to align with physical distancing guidelines. See below for an explanation of instructional method types, and for further questions visit https://healthinfo.ua.edu/student-faqs/.
What is a face-to-face course (FA)?
These courses are taught in a classroom, face-to-face with your instructor.
What is a hybrid course (HY)?
A hybrid course may include both face-to-face interactions and online teaching components and learning activities. How a hybrid course is facilitated will depend on many variables, including the course topic, the class size, the current environment, expert guidance, etc.
What is an interactive audio/video course (AV)?
These courses are taught remotely with real-time online class meetings with the instructor. The class will meet at a designated time with two-way exchange capabilities between the instructor and students.
What is an internet course (IN)?
Internet course content is strictly delivered online. Some proctored exams may be required but there are no other requirements that are place bound. Regular interactions between you and your instructor are a part of the teaching and learning process online.
