During the start of the 2020 school year, the EDLI team collaborated with the Provost’s Office, MSU Hub, and MSU IT to create a policy regarding web cameras and virtual instruction. This work leveraged EDLI’s extensive experience working with faculty and students in the classroom, and connected it to administrative decision-making to create a policy that was equitable and inclusive for students while also recognizing the impacts on the teaching process for faculty and acknowledging existing institutional policies. The current version of this policy can be found on the MSU Remote Teaching website.
