IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING SUMMER 2021 WORK ASSIGNMENTS AND COURSE DELIVERY: Courses posted as ‘In-Class’ may have to pivot to an alternative delivery format (see https://opened.uoguelph.ca/academic-continuity) in the case that requirements placed on the University and its employees by public health bodies, local, provincial, and federal governments necessitate such a mid-semester transition. Requirements for Winter 2021 course delivery include: - Course should be designed and delivered within an inclusive and accessible learning environment consistent with the principles of Universal Instructional Design (see: https://opened.uoguelph.ca/student-resources/Universal-Instructional-Design). - Course learning activities and assessments are to be created to easily accommodate a switch to alternative delivery methods. - Submission of a final and deferred exam, if applicable, to Department ahead of the exam period. - Plan to offer final exam, if applicable, in a modified format if there is another disruption of face-to-face classes. Please contact Dr. Ryan Gregory should you like to discuss the options for the delivery of this course prior to making an application.
