Your Fall and Winter Education courses are paced - and do have deadlines - as well as ‘digital classroom’ components. Classroom sessions are known as ‘synchronous sessions’, in which your class will connect simultaneously via the Zoom conferencing platform.
Classes usually have around four synchronous sessions per semester, often scheduled for around 4.30pm or later. You should refer to the Zoom schedule via your Registration Guide for more information.
"The time I spent on campus was really amazing. It brought me back into the student mindset and really set the pace for what the whole year was going to look like. It was also nice to be able to meet my fellow classmates and be able to put faces to names."
- Alexandra Crevier, BEd graduate
Your time on-campus
July 2020 Dates
July 6th - 17th
Online Success Program
If you are entering the first year of your program, you will be required to complete a number of pre-Orientation activities through online modules, prior to coming to campus. These activities include setting up IT accounts, becoming familiar with learning software, and completing writing assessment workshops. Detailed information will be provided once finalized.
During your first Summer term on campus, you will participate in two weeks of Orientation activities, built to familiarize you with the campus community, University resources that you can access (even during your distance-learning courses), and with faculty, staff, and fellow Education students. Participation in Orientation is mandatory.
Community-Based students are able to take advantage of a group rate through Residence and Hotel Alma during their Summer courses. You will be given more specific information about booking upon an offer of admission. International Student Services has a handy guide to short and long-term accommodation options!
