Plans to integrate technology across curriculum for Fall 2020May 27, 2020
Through the guidance of the Government of Saskatchewan’s April 23rd announcement of the Reopen Saskatchewan Plan, and in consultation with public health and Saskatchewan’s Chief Medical Health Officer, Southeast College will deliver a hybrid or blended approach to education delivery this fall with heavy emphasis on teaching with technology. Educators feel a combination of in person classes and online instruction gives students the best chance of academic success in the ever-changing environment of the global pandemic.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the Saskatchewan post-secondary sector has worked together to safeguard our students and staff and have established principles and protocols which have guided our incremental approach to fall programming.
Southeast College will combine online, classroom, laboratory, shop, clinical and physical instruction, while adhering to the public health guidelines as delivered by the Government of Saskatchewan’s Chief Medical Officer. This is reflective of comprehensive planning work done by our staff and faculty over the weeks since the emergence of COVID-19. It also provides the programming flexibility needed to manage the risks of the pandemic while ensuring the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff.
“As Southeast College continues to move forward with its plan to integrate instructional technologies into its programs, our focus will continue to be one of a Student First mindset,” states Patrick Stoddart, President and CEO of Southeast College. “Our students, their student experience and academic success are the most important aspects for us to consider when establishing our programming plans for the Fall of 2020. As such, if we need to alter our plan, it will be with the utmost of consideration for our students and their ongoing health and safety.”
Individual program details will be made available over the coming months.
