Planning a Safe Return
to the Classroom
The safety of faculty and students during in-person classroom instruction continues to be a top priority at Northeastern. Looking ahead to the Spring 2021 semester, faculty can leverage a variety of university resources to prepare for a safe and engaging experience for all.
Prepare for the Classroom Checklist
Before Semester Start
Get Familiar with the Classroom
Create a Zoom link through Canvas
Creating a Zoom link is necessary to allow students at a distance to join class sessions. Learn how to create a Zoom link and publish it as part of your Canvas course.
Get Tested for COVID-19
Anticipate Attendance via the Dynamic Scheduler
Follow Safety Policies and Protocols
Carry your own personal items to and from class, including markers, dusters, and headsets. Request a Lav mic if you believe your voice needs amplification for students in the classroom.
