Course delivery for Summer 2021 Term
Summer 2021 term
Similar to this spring, Summer 2021 term courses and services, including Session I (May 10–June 25) and Session II (July 5–August 20), will continue in adapted modes of delivery. Beginning on May 10, 2021, most courses and programs will be provided online, with certain courses offered in-person and others as a combination of in-person and online modes.
What students can do now to prepare
Registration for the Summer term and sessions begins on March 8, 2021. Each course will indicate its mode of delivery so that students will be able to see whether a course is offered online (synchronous and asynchronous), in-person (face-to-face), mixed mode (a combination of online and in-person) or off-site (practicums or community-based delivery). The mode of delivery is important information and we are encouraging students to review their options as early as possible in March.
Most courses will be offered through the University’s web-based tools, such as our learning management system (eLearn), MS Teams, WebEx, Kaltura and Zoom. As we continue to respond to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, courses that are offered in mixed-mode or in-person will have approved COVID-19 health and safety plans in place.
We will continue to offer our full range of academic learning supports and student services throughout the summer similar to the structure we have now. Any adjustments to the hours and delivery of these services will be posted on CapU’s COVID-19 Response Student Services webpage.
Looking ahead to Fall 2021 term
Planning is now underway for the next academic year, specifically the Fall 2021 term. We anticipate that our current context will shift significantly in the months ahead as British Columbia’s vaccination roll-out proceeds. With this in mind, we expect to share with you our initial next steps for Fall 2021 in the next couple of weeks, with a more detailed announcement in early May.
If you have any questions regarding the Summer 2021 term and sessions, please our news updates or contact the relevant area if you require further information.
I wish you well in your current studies and look forward to the day when rich opportunities to interact in-person are once again central to the CapU learning and teaching experience.
