Remote Learning Experience: Faculty Specific Discussions

Now that the semester is well underway, understanding students’ perspectives on the experience so far is important. Deans and their academic leadership teams will be hosting Faculty or Program-specific sessions with students to listen and learn, with a view to enhancing experiences for the rest of the Fall term, but also to set the stage for the Winter semester. Below is the list of activities organized by Faculty. Faculties will be sending out more information, and you can always check this page for updated information to ensure that you have the opportunity to take part in these discussions.

FAES Town Hall : 4 questions to students for framing the discussions
  1. What is your number one concern about the remote delivery of courses for the remainder of the Fall term?
  2. What aspects of the remote delivery of courses are working well (e.g., strategies, tools, etc.)?
  3. We know that assignments and tests in the remote context are significantly different for many courses—do you have examples of things that have worked well, or things that need to be improved?
  4. What change would make the most difference for you for remote delivery in the Winter semester?

McGill University is on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. We acknowledge and thank the diverse Indigenous people whose footsteps have marked this territory on which peoples of the world now gather.
