1. An apparatus for wireless communications at a user equipment (UE), comprising:
at least one processor,
memory coupled to the at least one processor; and
instructions stored in the memory and capable of configuring by the at least one processor to cause the apparatus to:
determine to change a slot format used by communication resources comprising an uplink channel and a downlink channel, the communication resources operating in a half-duplex mode using a first slot format;
transmit, to a network node, a control message that includes a request to change the slot format used by the communication resources based at least in part on determining to change the slot format;
receive, from the network node, an indication of a second slot format for communicating information over the communication resources based at least in part on transmitting the request; and
communicate, with the network node, the information over the communication resources using the second slot format based at least in part on receiving the indication.
