Announcing a new CTL Guide: Teaching in a Mask (at BU & beyond)


September 15th, 2021

BU’s face covering policy, which requires masks “to be worn indoors in classrooms, offices, public common areas, the BU Shuttle, and healthcare facilities,” is designed to protect the BU community. Teaching in a mask, however, presents a unique set of challenges.

This Guide presents tips to help instructors meet these challenges by protecting their voices, engaging students, and choosing the right gear. The Guide also includes an overview of the specific circumstances in which BU’s policy allows instructors and students to remove their masks.
