Today, McGill Provost Professor Christopher P. Manfredi confirmed that the Fall semester will begin on its expected date but that instructors will deliver classes remotely.
“To McGill students to begin, or continue, their academic path no matter where they are, Fall 2020 courses will be offered primarily through remote delivery platforms.”
This decision comes three days after president of University of Montreal (UdeM) announced classes that can be taught remotely will move online.
However, McGill will consider limited social gatherings on campus for academic and non-academic activities.
“As our situation evolves, and as public health restrictions on social gathering are lifted, we will examine possibilities for on-campus student life and learning activities, which will respect careful safety protocols. These may include activities such as small classroom-based seminars, conferences, tutorials, workshops, or reading groups as well as various campus life and engagement activities.”
