Any concerns about the effectiveness of remote learning on a college campus were downplayed by University of Minnesota Morris Chancellor Michelle Behr. Speaking on the KMRS Community Connection, Behr said the campus faculty has done an “amazing amount of work” over the summer to get ready for the fall, and no matter the delivery method of instruction…

“I know that they are doing their best to make sure that students are engaged and learning and develop the kind of close relationships that Morris is known for,” said Behr. “So, this is not just sort of — I don’t know — online correspondence school. This is really an experience that no matter how delivered, I think will reflect well on all the things that we expect from a Morris education.”

Classes began earlier this month, with 20 percent of the student body choosing to take their classes fully remote. This year’s Homecoming events during the week of October 5-10, which will celebrate the campus’ 60th anniversary, will also be largely online.
