IMPORTANT: More details on academic activities in Winter, 2022

Dear Bishop’s Community,

 

Happy New Year! May 2022 be safe, healthy and rewarding for us all!

 

This message is a follow-up to the one sent out on December 31 and serves as a reminder about the way we will begin the Winter 2022 semester. As promised, this message includes a list of courses granted an exemption and may begin on or near January 12th IN-PERSON.

 

Of course, like the pandemic, this list is subject to change.

 

Students are encouraged to check their BU email account on a regular basis and the course Moodle site for updates (e.g. some science labs and other courses may begin in-person in Week 2). Instructors may provide important details specific to their course by email and/or on the Moodle site.

The following courses will offer hybrid options as of January 12th:

DRA 161 (Intro to costume design)

MTH 300 (Musical production 1)

 

NB- These in-person classes will be offered at the times scheduled and in the classrooms posted in the current timetable (online Timetable (4070).rdl (ubishops.ca).

 

 

Other details to remember:

  1. All classes previously scheduled to be delivered online will continue to be delivered online. Synchronous courses will continue at the time scheduled in the current timetable.

All classes and hybrid ‘sections’ of courses that are currently scheduled to meet in person will begin online at the scheduled time and will continue online until at least January 17, 2022 (we apologize for any confusion created by inadvertently referring to January 24th in an earlier message).

  1. The University plans to revert to offering as much in-person instruction as possible once it is allowed by Public Health. Therefore, students who have registered for in-person classes must be prepared to return to Lennoxville for these in-person classes beyond January 17.

 

  1. Students should not expect hybrid sections of in-person classes to be offered if the course returns to in-person delivery.

Future updates

The University commits to communicating regularly with the community as the COVID situation evolves.

 

A return to further in-person academic activities will be announced to the community at least one week in advance.

 

Unfortunately, significant uncertainty still remains as we commence the Winter semester. We recognize that such uncertainty is difficult, and may cause extra work, anxiety, and stress for staff, faculty, and students.

 

At this moment, unpredictability is the new reality so we need to be supportive of each other as we face these challenges.

 

Be well. BU.
