Virtual Protocol:

Participants will be asked to leave their video on throughout the entire class. If an attendee needs to step away during class, they are asked to mute and leave their camera on leaving an empty chair to show they are unavailable. This is similar to traditional classroom etiquette; it allows the instructor to see that a participant is not available and limits the possibility that an attendee would be called on when not available.

Instructors will provide interactive group discussions, breakout sessions, worksheets, and interactive polling questions. Instructors will also provide a 10-minute break each hour to allow attendees the opportunity to stretch.

This virtual protocol is designed to encourage engagement and show respect for the group discussions and the instructor. Participants without video will be asked to register for a future in person class. For questions about virtual protocol and participant expectations, please call Johnnieanne at 845-565-1355.
