Abstract

Most engineering and computer science faculty members at our public university prefer teaching in a face-to-face format instead of teaching virtually. However, when faced with the COVID-19 pandemic, the university offers faculty members ‘Traditional Classroom/Laboratory,’ ‘Blended Hybrid,’ ‘Flexible mode,’ ‘Remote Virtual,’ or ‘Online’ teaching modalities. Faculty members are given a choice among these five modalities that best suit their courses. The choices made by 270 faculty members (average for Fall 2020 and Spring of 2021) are presented in this paper. Conclusions are also presented based on this data.
