Teaching in Honors Fall 2021

Policies and Guidelines

  • Syllabi for Honors courses must contain all syllabi elements required by the campus at large; additionally, Honors syllabi must contain the Honors-specific SLOs associated with your Honors course category.  If you have questions about SLOs or your Honors course category, contact honors@cofc.edu.
  • Assignments should all be electronic, whenever possible (faculty are required to use OAKS to facilitate student access to the course syllabus, course materials, and the gradebook; the College of Charleston’s standard grading system is in effect).
  • Faculty should bring their own teaching equipment to the classroom (if you are in need of supplies for your HONS course, contact honors@cofc.edu).
  • If faculty develop Covid-related symptoms or otherwise feel ill, they should contact their immediate supervisor to coordinate coverage of their class. Faculty should also contact Student Health Services.
  • Students may be anxious, so please maintain open lines of communication and update them often. Keep an eye on your students’ well-being and use the FAST form when necessary.
  • Also be sure to monitor your own mental health and wellbeing. These are crazy times, and you’re being asked to work under extremely adverse circumstances. We’re asking our students to cut themselves some slack and not to necessarily strive for perfection. Do the same for yourself.
