Special Notes for 2020-2021 Courses:

All courses will be delivered ONLINE for the 2020-2021 academic year. Students are to refer to course outlines, where instructors will outline the mode of delivery (synchronous/asynchronous, or a blended model) as well as the online learning platforms that will be used in each course.

Synchronous  sessions are those in which classes run online, in real-time (Eastern time zone), where students are required to be logged onto the instructor's choice of learning platform and engaging in class sessions.

▪ Asynchronous  content is that which is pre-recorded or provided to students to complete according to their own schedules. This could include pre-recorded lectures, course readings, group work, etc.

 A Blended model will include some combination of the above course delivery models.

Students are expected to attend and participate online, for all SYNCHRONOUS classes, as scheduled by the course instructor. The schedule below lists where courses are officially scheduled, but it is up to the instructor whether or not these full time slots will be used as synchronous sessions.

For a full listing of academic dates (e.g., add/drop dates), please visit the SGPS Listing of Sessional Dates.
