Please read the following information regarding the Paralegal Course Schedule with Covid-19 Adjustments for Fall 2020
As an American Bar Association-approved program, we schedule a certain amount of some of our courses to include synchronous or live class time where students and the instructor are in the same place. Prior to mid-March of this year, the “place” was a traditional classroom in Poplar Hall at the Peoria Campus of Illinois Central College.
In an effort to continue the level of quality education employers expect of our graduates and in keeping with the expectations of the ABA, we have modified our fall semester schedule to provide students with the assurance that we will be there for you this fall semester, regardless of circumstances that may be imposed by Covid-19.
You can plan on Prlgl 110, 117, and 260 continuing as wholly online courses.
Prlgl 112, 113, 116, and 215 will continue as “hybrid” courses, with part of the class being completed through Blackboard along with an expectation that you attend face to face, in-class sessions. Going forward, the “in-class” session will be virtual, with live and interactive video and audio.
Students will be expected to log in and attend one virtual class session per course for each week of the semester. The schedule for these virtual in-class sessions is below. There are two sessions available for each course, one in the daytime and one in the evening. You can attend either session any given week depending on your schedule. But the expectation is that you must attend one of the sessions just as students were expected to attend the on-campus, in-class sessions prior to Covid-19.
To attend your in-class sessions, you will need to have the ability to be seen and heard through a live video feed via Zoom. You can access Zoom on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Depending on what social distancing guidelines allow us to do for on-campus class sessions, we may provide an opportunity to attend class in person, but, even if we do, we will continue the live video presentation as well. The reason for this is two-fold. First, we know we have students and faculty who may have concerns for either their own health or the health of family members. And second, if we are forced off campus again this fall, this approach allows us to be able to continue these courses without the disruption and anxiety we all endured this past March.
The "in-class,” live class component will be available at the following times. The expectation for each in-class session will vary depending on the needs or objectives of each course and the presentation choices of individual instructors.
