Sheridan releases Fall 2021 plans focused on an increased return to on-campus activities
New and returning Sheridan students have been notified of their program modes of delivery for the Fall Term. These include hybrid (a combination of virtual and in-person classes), virtual or flexible – students can choose to complete their courses in a remote or hybrid mode.
For Fall 2021, up to 45% of programs (college-wide average) will have some in-person delivery depending on student choice and 55% will be virtual only. Program decisions were made after careful consultation with academic teams based on pedagogical requirements and ensuring the best learning experience possible during this challenging time. They also took into consideration fluctuating circumstances pertaining to Ontario’s Roadmap to Re-open, vaccine roll-out, public health guidelines in Peel and Halton Regions and the Ministry of Colleges and Universities’ on-campus classroom occupancy.
No matter the mode of delivery, Sheridan remains committed to immerse its students in meaningful learning experiences to keep them engaged, supported and connected. These include a full complement of virtual supports like counselling, career and academic advising, library resources, assistance with assignments and citation, tutoring, and Sheridan’s signature Well Series – highly interactive workshops and virtual events tailored for new students transitioning into postsecondary life as well as academic success supports embedded in first-year courses and virtual communities.
Sheridan also remains steadfast in its commitment to continually re-evaluating on-campus activity beyond what’s been possible in 2020 and 2021 while respecting public health measures. “We are optimistic that there will be a full face-to-face return in the Winter 2022 Term (beginning in January), dependent on environmental conditions, and we are in the process of actively planning for that scenario,” says Carol Altilia, Provost and Vice President, Academic.
Throughout the summer, Sheridan will provide updates about the extent to which on-campus facilities such as its library and learning commons, studios, cafeterias and gyms will be available for use this fall.
