Please note that given the resumption of in-person teaching activities, most courses will be taught in person. Exams may however need to be administered remotely depending, mainly on the size of the class. Course Lecturers will be required to plan accordingly. Should government restrictions prohibit the resumption of in person teaching, courses will revert to remote teaching. In the event of such a change, Course Lecturers will be advised without delay. Course Lecturers may be required to prepare and deliver teaching material suited to a remote/online teaching environment using a virtual learning platform [e.g., Zoom, WebEx] and the McGill myCourses learning management system. Training and assistance on remote teaching is available through Teaching and Learning Services (TLS) . Course Lecturers are encouraged to record their lectures.


Veuillez noter qu’en raison de la reprise des activités d’enseignement en personne, la plupart des cours seront offerts en format présentiel. Il se peut toutefois que les étudiants doivent passer leurs examens à distance en fonction principalement de la taille des classes. Les chargés de cours devront planifier en conséquence. Si les restrictions gouvernementales interdisent la reprise de l'enseignement en personne, les cours reviendront à l'enseignement à distance. Dans l'éventualité d'un tel changement, les chargés de cours en seront informés sans délai. Les chargés de cours peuvent être appelés à préparer et à présenter du matériel didactique adapté à un environnement d'enseignement à distance/en ligne en utilisant une plateforme d'apprentissage virtuelle (p. ex., Zoom, WebEx) et myCourses, le système de gestion de l'apprentissage de McGill. Les Services d’enseignement et d’apprentissage (TLS) offrent de la formation et de l’assistance en matière d’enseignement à distance. Les chargés de cours sont encouragés à enregistrer leurs cours.
