COVD-19 changes plans for hands-on classes

Regina Ivy, Editor-in-Chief

As most students know, the COVID-19 pandemic has been heightening rapidly. This has caused businesses, schools and colleges to shut down. Most colleges are going online for the foreseeable future. According to an announcement from the president, LLCC will be doing the same.  

This could be a different and tasking change for more hands-on kind of classes, such as the art classes and classes offered in the workforce center. It also will be difficult for students who are required to have a certain amount of field observation hours done in order to successfully pass the class. 

For education courses, professor Taibeh Hoseinalli clarifies: We have planned for synchronous Zoom meetings are exact time as the classes were to meet. For observation hours we are having our students do virtual book reading or lessons under the guidance of their cooperating teachers.” 

Many programs are still finding ways to go forth during this time. Looking for an alternative for field observations, and hands-on class time will be a challenge that unique departments are going to have to face during this time.
