When Are Your Office Hours?

Spring 2024 Office Hours: Mon & Wed, 10a – 1130a (click here to join via Teams); also, by appt, all office hours and other meetings will be held via Teams since observing social distancing rules in a small space is impossible. You will enter the lobby when you join my office hours. I’ll admit you when I am clear to meet with you.

Office: JH651

Communications: Teams DM (preferred) or email at john DOT shannon AT shu DOT edu

We can schedule an alternative meeting time if you are unavailable during my office hours. As you know, our course communications platform is Teams. Please DM me in Teams with some days/times when you are available, and we can schedule a video conference in Teams.

My office hours are subject to change every semester, so please check your course syllabus for my current office hours (see above). I generally schedule at least one hour a week using Teams video to accommodate those conflicting with my scheduled office hours. If you’re unavailable to meet in my office, you can make an appointment for a F2F meeting, or we can set up a video conference using Teams. I prefer video conferences because they give me more options when answering your questions.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to move to a fundamentally different set of delivery modalities, e.g., HyFlex, hybrid, remote, synchronous, or not, or some combination of approaches to teaching and learning. We are increasingly working remotely to accomplish our work. That remote modality demands that we adjust our understanding of acceptable protocols for attendance and participation, whether a meeting or course attendance, engagement, and participation.

That said, I carve out space for thoughtful consideration of life. The practical impact of that desire is to keep evenings and weekends clear for family, friends, and other forms of social interaction. If you are going to ping me late on a Friday, then I will get back to you on Monday unless it is an emergency … a REAL emergency.
