36L: LEC0101 and LEC9101: MWF12, Online Synchronous LEC0201 and LEC9201: MWF1, Online Synchronous 30P: T9-12/T1-4/W9-12/W2-5/W5-8/R9-12/R1-4/M2-5, Online Synchronous Each lecture will have both a synchronous and an asynchronous component. The asynchronous component will be a prerecorded video lecture that students will be expected to view prior to the synchronous lecture. The synchronous lecture will be remote attendance via Zoom, and it will be recorded allowing asynchronous viewing. Students are required to have a camera with a microphone for online activities in the lectures and Practicals. Practicals will not be recorded, and must be attended synchronously.

Delivery Methods

In Person

A course is considered In Person if it requires attendance at a specific location and time for some or all course activities.*.

* Subject to adjustments imposed by public health requirements for physical distancing.

Online - Synchronous
A course is considered Online Synchronous if online attendance is expected at a specific time for some or all course activities, and attendance at a specific location is not expected for any activities or exams.
Asynchronous
A course is considered Asynchronous if it has no requirement for attendance at a specific time or location for any activities or exams.
