Fall 2021 Course Delivery
Apr 16, 2021
This fall marks the first time since March 2020 that courses will be delivered in-person, on-campus. The prospect of returning to campus is exciting and the return will be undertaken cautiously and safely. At every step, we will be working under the guidance of the Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and government direction to ensure the right measures are in place.
As the pandemic develops, the vaccination programs progress, and the government guidelines are released, we anticipate all plans will need to be flexible and could be subject to change. With countries around the world, including Canada, still working to contain the outbreak of COVID-19, the course schedule and delivery models were developed in a way that ensures the safety of everyone involved.
A majority of courses will be offered in a blended delivery model. For blended delivery courses, there will be on-campus, in-person classes and asynchronous online course components.
Students in blended delivery courses can expect to have one on-campus class per week and online course work.
Fully in-person delivery
Depending on factors such as course timing, learning outcomes and degree requirements, select courses will be delivered fully in-person, on-campus.
Students attend scheduled class via Zoom. There is no requirement for students in virtual classes to visit campus.
Online delivery (Asynchronous)
Select courses will be completely online and asynchronous. There will be no requirement for students in online courses to visit campus.
Course delivery options will be noted in MyLION so students are aware of the delivery model when they register.
Students can pre-register/waitlist for courses beginning in late April and formal registration opens in May. To ensure the safety of students in on-campus courses, all classes are currently capped to keep class sizes small. With class sizes being smaller, you are encouraged to pre-register/waitlist to secure your spot.
If you have questions about which courses to take, please contact the Academic Advising Office. For registration support through MyLION, please contact Enrolment Services. Working together, staff are excited to help you prepare for the Fall 2021 semester.
We look forward to welcoming new and familiar faces this September, making our campus vibrant once more.
