I ask that there be regular or weekly class Zoom meetings held for each Lab section by each lab instructor focused on going over some of the material for that week. Personally, it is extremely difficult to consume the material and then apply it to work that is assigned when all of it is essentially self-taught. Because of the devastating effects of COVID, we as students are not able to be in a physical lab class and be instructed for the 3 hours a week that is listed on the pre-COVID syllabus and on MyUNLV.

Without live online meetings, I believe students in these lab sections are unfortunately subject to missing key information or tools needed to sufficiently digest the course load associated with Physics 151. This predicament is unprecedented by any former enrollees of this course. Therefore, why must we be the only class of students who will not receive live instruction, nor supplemental online instruction from the instructors we have paid this university to provide. I empathize that this COVID era is challenging for faculty as well. However, I don’t believe that emails will suffice.

Please sign this petition if you agree with the above statement and would like to have live WebEx or Zoom meetings held by our lab instructors at the regularly scheduled time of your lab.
