Latest update as of Thursday, March 12, 全民双色球旧版下载 | 9:00 p.m.
New In response to the latest developments of the COVID-19 outbreak in Florida and in particular Broward County, Broward College will transition its spring courses to remote instruction. Staff and faculty will continue to report to their regular work location to ensure the continuation of services to students throughout the entirety of the spring semester. The College is not closing.
Course instruction will be suspended for students effective Saturday, March 14 through Sunday, March 22, with the exception of any field experience courses (i.e., health science clinicals, teacher education) and law enforcement academies. During this week, the College will be focused on ensuring that a transition to remote instruction successfully supports student learning. Additionally, the College recognizes that a limited number of courses are not adaptable to remote instruction. Decisions about those courses will be made in collaboration with our faculty and administrators during that week. All other College operations will continue during the instructional suspension.
Spring term courses that are in being placed-shifted to remote instruction will be in effect on Monday, March 23. At this time, we anticipate delivering summer session courses as originally planned.
While we have taken every precaution necessary to limit the spread of coronavirus on our campuses and centers, the decision to transition to remote instruction follows extensive consultation with local and state officials to ensure we provide a healthy and safe environment for our students and employees.
