COSAM’s Commitment to the Student Experience – Calculus I Blended Learning Option
Even with limitations resulting due to the COVID-19 pandemic, for Selim Sukhtaiev, assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics in the College of Sciences and Mathematics (COSAM), teaching in his Calculus I course in-person is an opportunity to interact with students and explain difficult concepts.
Students have the option to attend his course in-person or online on a rotating basis.
“Only 50 percent of students are in the classroom physically each day and the other half attends virtually,” Sukhtaiev said. “This way we can ensure we have enough room to have social distancing for students while still helping them learn this challenging subject.”
Students have access to hand sanitizer stations throughout the Sciences Center Classroom Building. The lecture theatre itself has disinfecting wipe dispensers mounted conveniently by the entrances.
“I am glad that I can interact with students and teach in the classroom to help our students succeed,” he said.
