Lethbridge College has decided on curriculum delivery plans for the Winter 2021 semester, which begins in January. The college remains committed to providing a quality learning environment for its students that allows them to be ready for what comes next in their professional or educational careers.

The college will continue with its current flexible learning environment, which includes online, on-campus and blended course delivery depending on the needs of each program. However, the success of on-campus delivery this fall means the college is well-positioned to offer more in-person, on-campus options in Winter 2021.

Like the fall, priority will be given to labs and other experiential learning opportunities that are enhanced by in-person delivery. The college’s academic leaders are working with faculty to determine which classes will be held on-campus, and students will receive information about their specific programs and courses in the coming weeks.

“Based on feedback from both students and employees, and reassurance from Alberta Health Services that our processes meet or exceed their recommended protocols, we believe we have been able to balance student learning with the health and safety of our entire college community this fall,” says Dr. Paula Burns, Lethbridge College President and CEO. “This has been made possible by everyone’s commitment to following the safety steps we put in place this fall. Everything we do is subject to evolving public health guidelines and we will continue to follow the advice of Alberta Health Services.”

The college will also explore whether any student services or supports are able to safely return to in-person service this winter. Those decisions will be made in the coming weeks.
