Network Analysis of SFU Course Registrations

by   William Ruth, et al.
Simon Fraser University

We investigate the dynamics of disease infection via shared classes at Simon Fraser University, a medium-sized school in Western Canada. Specifically, we use simulation to examine the impact of keeping classes above a certain size online, while those below that size are allowed to meet in person. We use simple models for infection and recovery, as well as multiple regimes for infectiousness and class size threshold. Graph theoretic properties of the student-class enrollment network are also computed, and one such statistic is used to model an important output of our simulations.
