Here are this week’s updates for the U of A community:

Remote work continues through fall semester

This fall we will welcome some students and instructors back to campus for in-person instruction. But for most, there will be no change. Those staff and faculty currently working remotely will continue to do so until at least December 31, 2020. To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we must continue to minimize the number of people on campus, as well as appropriately manage the health and safety of those who need to be attending class or working on campus.

What you need to know about events in Fall 2020

Events are part of university life. As we head into Fall 2020, most employees are working remotely and most courses remain online — naturally, the university's annual gatherings will look a little different. If you’re wondering how our major events will unfold this year, or if you're planning or considering events this fall, read this information for Fall 2020 events.

Learning remotely eClass for students

The Learning Remotely eClass is available to all UAlberta students. The eClass includes short, animated e-learning modules and provides students with information and resources to successfully transition to a remote learning environment.
