U of R expects online classes will continue into fall semester

The University of Regina expects their courses will continue to be offered online in the fall.

In their Tuesday update on their website, the U of R shares that their remote delivery of classes offers students in the fall “the best chance of academic success as we navigate the rapidly changing landscape of the global pandemic.”

“The safety of all – students, faculty, staff, their families, and the broader community – remains paramount. Fall 2020 course delivery will therefore be aligned with the public health guidelines established by the province’s Chief Medical Health Officer,” reads the statement from the university.

The school mentions they are creating principles and protocols that will guide a “cautious approach” to fall semester course delivery.

“The situation is fluid, changing daily. As it changes, we will communicate with you.”

More details about the fall term will be communicated in the coming weeks.

The U of R discontinued in-person classes back on March 16 and has since delivered some of their courses remotely.

Earlier on Tuesday, the University of Saskatchewan announced their plan to have the majority of their fall courses online.
