Spring 2022 - Delivery Mode Names and Definitions Updated
Please note: The Office of the Registrar has resumed normal operations; the following information reflects historical operational and policy updates due to COVID-19.
See the University of Iowa COVID-19 website for the most up to date information.
For spring 2022, only one Hybrid delivery mode will be utilized in MAUI. The Hybrid with Rotation and Hybrid without Rotation delivery modes will be discontinued in August 2021. Course Offerings with either of those delivery modes will be converted to the new Hybrid delivery mode by Office of the Registrar staff.
Updates to Delivery Mode Names and Definitions
As we continue to solidify best practices implemented during our previous COVID-19 impacted sessions, the Office of the Registrar is updating terminology used in MAUI and in MyUI to be more transparent and concise as it relates to our instructional delivery mode indicators. Through use of consistent and clear language, communication to our students and departments can be improved. Reporting processes will also benefit indirectly. Therefore, the following refinements are now live in MAUI Course Planner and MyUI.
