To help faculty apply AP2105, Regular Substantive Interaction Guidel​ines (as approved by District Senate May 24, 2021) have been developed and approved by the DE Committees and Academic Senates at all three colleges. If ​you have any questions, contact your college DE Committee Chair (see links above). Faculty can also contact an Instructional Designer to discuss the requirements and guidelines.​
