Classes and Academic Information 

Only a very small number of College of Education classes will have an in-person component for Autumn quarter -- less than 10%.  The best way to know is to look up your classes in the UW Autumn Time ScheduleIn-person classes will have building and room number listed in the Time Schedule, while online classes will not have a location listed and will have the words "Offered Via Remote Learning" in the description/comments.  Some online classes are being conducted synchronously, meaning that you will have online class meetings at the times shown in the UW Time Schedule.  Other online classes are being conducted asynchronously, meaning that there are no scheduled class meetings, but you will complete online learning activities at times that fit your schedule while also keeping pace with the instructor’s expectations. 

We recognize that every student is in a different place with access to technology, access to the internet, work schedules, and caregiving responsibilities, so courses will be conducted with an eye to ensuring all students can access the content and learn effectively. If you have specific needs or concerns, contact your instructors directly.

Online Learning 


Field Experiences

We understand that many of you have important fieldwork components to your education in the College. Your program directors are collaborating with state and national certification agencies, as well as school and community partners to ensure your fieldwork requirements are addressed. Your program director/instructor will send specific updates regarding the  fieldwork expectations you will be engaged in to meet program requirements.  Please contact your program director / lead if you have questions about your fieldwork.
