2:00PM| Remote Proctoring
This session is for all instructors who are interested in using remote proctoring for midterms or final exams in the spring semester. Presenters will explain in detail the methods they have developed and tested that encourage academic integrity while minimizing stress and time burden on students, GSIs, and instructors.

In addition to instructors of fully-remote class sections, this session will help all instructors become familiar with best practices and operations of remote proctoring in order to prepare for possible interruptions to in-person instruction, e.g. due to smoke, campus power outages, etc. The remote proctoring methodologies described in the session can also be used to meet some student accommodation requirements, including extended time in a low distraction environment, and this will be described.

Presenters: Clark Nguyen, Michael Ball, Nicholas Weaver, and Peyrin Kao (EECS)
