Fall 2020 Information Update

From the Associate Dean, Dr. Chris Mattatall - May 22, 2020:

Dear Graduate Students, 

A reminder that all Faculty of Education graduate programs and courses are going ahead in Summer 2020. We look forward to connecting with you virtually during your summer courses.  

We want to ensure that all of our graduate students are aware of the situation for the fall term. All components of courses will be online for the Fall 2020 term.  

The vast majority of our graduate students will not be impacted as your Fall 2020 courses were scheduled online and remain unchanged. 

A few Fall 2020 courses will transition from face-to-face to online, and while the delivery method is adapting, the quality of instruction and content will remain. Your scheduled class times remain in place, and instructors may utilize these times for synchronous online meetings. Please rest assured that your program will retain its rigour and calibre. We have been utilizing blended delivery for decades and are putting this experience to good use in modifying on-campus courses to an online presence for the Fall term.  

If you are currently working on a thesis, your colloquium and Thesis oral defence will proceed as planned, however they will be held virtually. 

While we will miss seeing students in person, we will continue to provide supports virtually. If you are contemplating changes to your program, let us provide you with the resources you need to make an informed decision. If you have questions or would like further information, please be sure to contact us at

Your Graduate Studies and Research in Education team.
