The Canadian Association of University Teachers has released a database of postsecondary back-to-school plans for the Fall 2021 semester. The database includes information about course delivery modes, institutional health and safety plans, and any available hybrid teaching and vaccination requirement information. The database shows that 43% of institutions plan to deliver courses primarily in-person with some online and hybrid courses, while 31% plan to use a blended learning approach. 12% will require students in residence to have at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. CAUT has also released the COVID-19 Guidance for Assessing Campus Re-opening Plans checklist, which can be used to assess the reopening plans of institutions. CAUT (National)
