Institutions support, connect with students in, beyond classroom

May 13, 2020

Schools across the country continue to connect with and provide support to students both within and outside of the virtual classroom. Saskatchewan Polytechnic, for example, delivered the Objective Structured Clinical Examination for Bachelor of Science nursing students in a virtual format for the first time with success. The University of Winnipeg has continued to offer a virtual quilting group as part of a mentorship program available through the Aboriginal Student Services Centre, expanding their service to incorporate International, Immigrant and Refugee Student Services. Further east, students of the specialized graduate studies diploma (DESS) in journalism at the Université de Montréal have launched a virtual agency in order to publish text, audio, and video reports regarding COVID-19 in order to complete their program requirements.
