ON colleges faced with challenge of addressing applied components of curriculum

March 20, 2020

Ontario colleges are facing unique challenges in online curriculum delivery due to many programs’ hands-on approach to learning. “It’s the applied component that’s a challenge,” said Algonquin College Senior Vice-President Academic Chris Janzen. “There is nobody who is going to lose their term, but the completion of that program may be delayed.” To prepare for the possibility that regular classes may not resume soon, Colleges Ontario is conducting a sector-wide survey to see how schools may proceed. Questions include whether colleges would extend the current semester or delay the start of the summer term and what they would do about convocation. The Star (ON)
