Laurentian University Plans Some Face To Face Teaching In September

Laurentian University laid out some of its plans for September yesterday. The Sudbury University says it plans on having some face to face instruction but will offer a majority of classes remotely. 

This was released via Facebook and will certainly be a major disappointment for those students looking to gain the full college experience. The announcement was done through a joint memorandum between the University and the Faculty Association (LUFA).

A number of the programs will be evaluated and determined whether they can be face to face or not. These courses will have to meet strict guidelines such as physical distancing, personal protective equipment availability and public health protocols etc. 

The following quotes were also made available.

“The safety of our community is most important to us. Through this, we have determined that we can safely offer some courses in-person. We aim to deliver a highly personalized, exceptional classroom experience, and we believe that we can safely deliver this for certain courses. We look forward to September and having some students return to our classrooms on our campus. It will surely feel different, however, we are committed to finding the best way possible

to deliver teaching and maximize learning – our students deserve nothing less.” Dr. Robert Haché, President and Vice-Chancellor of Laurentian University.

“We would like to thank our labour partners, LUFA, for their dedication to our students and in collaborating with us to sign this memorandum of understanding. This is the first step in our plan to be able to resume teaching on campus and we look forward to implementing further steps of the plan as we look forward to the Winter term.” – Dr. Serge Demers, Interim Vice President, Academic and Provost
