Forbes - Rovy Branon believes in the power of education to promote positive change, advance social equity and improve lives. "At times like these, with a global pandemic, social unrest and political discord, education can help bring together people of diverse backgrounds and opinions in a supportive, collaborative community to equip and enable them to solve the problems we face," said Branon, vice provost of Continuum College, the University of Washington's continuing education and professional development unit.
In Lubbock, Texas Tech University (TTU) will resume in-person teaching and learning for the fall 2020 semester utilizing a blend of face-to-face, hybrid, and online modalities. On their website, the university states that more than two-thirds of the courses will be taught using some degree of face-to-face instruction. While students will be required to wear a mask or face covering when attending an in-person class or inside any campus building, instructors will not be required to wear a mask to meet the needs of students with hearing impairments.
