As Brock continues to plan for a significant return to campus for the Fall Term, the University anticipates further guidance from the province to provide clarity on the timing and conditions of on-campus instruction. An announcement is expected next week.
Given this current context, Brock has decided that courses beginning between Tuesday, Sept. 7 and Friday, Sept. 10 will start online for those days only. On-campus instruction will resume on Monday, Sept. 13 for all courses except those already designated for online delivery in the Fall Term.
Courses that begin prior to Sept. 7, such as some in the Faculty of Education, are not affected and will proceed as planned between Sept. 7 and 10.
Students who are uncertain about whether their courses are affected should review their timetable to know which courses start on these dates and then consult their SAKAI course page closer to Sept. 7 for more information from their instructors.
Colleagues in the Centre for Pedagogical Innovation are ready to support any instructors who require help with the short-term move online.
This short-term move to online learning will allow members of the Brock community additional time to respond to the University’s vaccine mandate, such as by uploading proof of their status. It will also allow academic units additional time to adapt the timetable should this become necessary following the government announcement expected next week.
All other on-campus activities scheduled between Sept. 7 and 10, including Welcome Week activities, will proceed as scheduled. The University will remain open, with all buildings accessible, including research labs.
Brock remains strongly committed to a safe return to campus for the Fall Term.
