MSc PT students attending the Calgary Campus will take their classes in the University of Alberta Physical Therapy Department's space in the University of Calgary Downtown Centre. MSc PT classes (lectures, seminars and labs) are delivered either face-to-face or by real-time web/video cast technology on 60 inch plasma screens to view professors from other campuses. State of the art technology is employed to ensure that students have real time communication with lecturers based in Edmonton, Camrose and Calgary. While the majority of classes are broadcast from Edmonton, faculty will broadcast from all campuses throughout the program. In-person faculty will be present at all campuses during all lectures, seminars and labs.
The Calgary classroom and lab spaces were renovated in 2011 and are fully equipped.
Students at the Calgary campus complete their studies in the University of Alberta Physical Therapy Department at the University of Calgary Downtown Centre, a newly renovated building containing a library, computer labs and ample student study space. The Calgary cohort will benefit from a unique arrangement with the University of Calgary: students will have access to the UofC recreational facilities and transit pass that are physically located in Calgary. Students will also have access to UofA services that can be provided at a distance such as library access and student advisory and academic resources. Calgary is Alberta’s largest urban centre and offers a full range of services, festivals and venues.
