How to Record Your Class

In-Person Teaching During Fall Term

All classes at the University of Pittsburgh are now meeting in person, unless permission for remote or hybrid delivery has been approved by your dean. While we look forward to the return of in-person learning after so much time, it is possible that individual faculty members and students may need to isolate at some points in the weeks ahead should University health guidelines require that. Instructors are expected to work with students who are unable to come to class due to a need to isolate or quarantine, or because they are ill. In light of this reality, we have developed a series of suggestions to help you support students who may be in quarantine or isolation—or accommodate your own absence, should the need arise.

Please also consider adding a statement to your syllabi inviting students to contact you to discuss arrangements if they are required to quarantine or isolate due to Pitt’s health and safety guidelines. Note, Student Health Services does not provide medical excuses and students who are required to quarantine or isolate due to a COVID diagnosis or close contact are NOT required to request accommodation through DRS. Students will need to inform their instructors if they cannot attend classes because of quarantine, isolation, or illness. In these situations, instructors should recognize the need for confidentiality. Please see Provost Ann E. Cudd’s memo for more information on Pitt transition to in-person classes and what it means for instructors at Pitt.
