School is starting up again (for those embarking on new careers during the fall semester) and although the learning outcomes may be the same, it won’t feel exactly the same.
The first difference you can expect – hand sanitizer stations will be set up everywhere throughout or campuses and you’ll be requested to stay 6 feet/2 metres away from other students. That means no congregating in student lounges or hallways.
Masks are also encouraged, where physical distance of 6 feet or two metres cannot be maintained. Read more on the Provincial Government’s website.
Unless otherwise specified by your campus director or instructor, we’ve switched to online learning. Instead of attending a physical classroom, attend virtual lectures, complete your assignments online, and message your instructors in online forums and chat features for one-on-one feedback.
Despite these new protocols in place, the same course materials and the content will still be taught, so don’t worry. The plan is for you to complete your hands-on practicum placements at the end of term when conditions have improved, but in the meantime, we want to ensure your utmost safety while you receive your hands-on education with us.
While studying online may be different than the traditional classroom setting, there are lots of benefits to completing your coursework online.
Knowing this, you can work on practices to ensure that you’re more disciplined when it comes to studying and completing assignments online.
With all of this said, we’re expecting that you will have a successful return to school transition. If you need any assistance along the way, make sure to contact our Student Services team or our Admissions team, with any questions you may have.
