Instructional Delivery Methods

The instructional delivery method for a course describes how a course will be offered by the instructor(s). Until recently, most JHU classes were held in-person, in an instructional space. However, that has recently changed due to both advances in technology and the need to hold courses remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Below you’ll find the university’s instructional delivery methods.
