Increased online courses frustrate ULaval students

August 18, 2021
Several Université Laval students expressed their disappointed to the Journal de Montréal after learning that they will be studying via distance learning for the Fall semester. The university is expected to offer a higher percentage of online courses than prior to the pandemic, even though the Government of Quebec is allowing postsecondary students to return to campus. Confédération des Associations d’étudiants et étudiantes de l’Université Laval (CADEUL) president Cyndelle Gagnon expressed the group’s disappointment with the high rate of online classes, but encouraged students to be understanding. ULaval reportedly made the decision to not change course delivery modes after June 15 to avoid causing students stress and to enable students to plan ahead for the Fall semester. Priority for in-person courses has been given to students in practical courses and first-year students. Journal de Montréal (QC)
