Fall 2020 Course Delivery

The Faculty of Education and Social Work is preparing to welcome you!

Below here you will find current details pertaining to course delivery in your faculty for the fall 2020 term. Most courses will be online and delivered through alternate modes — bringing all the good practice from on-campus delivery to the versatility and accessibility of virtual learning and teaching.

Any course components that are delivered in-person will be done following the guidance of public health officials as required. For courses delivered online, some may have real-time activities like online meetings and lectures. If these elements are part of your course, we have asked our instructors to make sure that no students in the class are disadvantaged if they are unable to participate synchronously.

As we confirm more details, we will keep this page will updated.
