“IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING FALL 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 Fall 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 Adrian Schwan, should you like to discuss the options for the delivery of this course prior to making an application.” The Department of Chemistry is committed to ensuring that our students are provided with a high standard of teaching excellence. Part of this commitment is the distribution of Teaching Assistant resources to course sections in a fair and transparent manner. Resources within the Department of Chemistry will be distributed in a fair manner that takes into consideration: • Level of course; • Pedagogical requirements of the course including use of seminars, tutorials, and laboratories; • Delivery method and requirements (e.g., Distance education vs. in-class course formats); • Number of students; • Workload considerations (including the overall workload of instructor); • Department and College norms; and, • Budgetary constraints. It is expected that the number of teaching assistants assigned to courses may vary from offering to offering based on the above factors. Distribution of teaching assistant resources is determined by the Chair. Requests for teaching assistant resources should be made as soon as practicable.
