Timetable 2021 Summer Session

Last updated February 11, 2021

Term 1 | Term 2

 

TERM 1

May – June

Subject to Change. Please note that UBC SSC – Course Schedule is the authoritative source.

General guidance

Synchronous:

For courses that meet together online at set times, efforts will be made to provide recorded materials to students in case of availability or time zone issues that limit participation. However, students cannot register for two online courses that meet together at set times during the same 3 hour time slot.

For the courses that meet together online at set times, most courses will not require that students attend 3 hour online sessions. Instead, courses will require meetings of 1.5 to 2 hours and will provide online materials and activities for students to complete on their own for the remaining weekly course time.

Asynchronous:

Courses that have no set online meeting times will have office hours, where students can connect with their instructors directly by phone or video chat, and students may be asked to set up scheduled meetings with small groups. However, these classes will not have any required meetings of the whole class at set times to enable students the flexibility to work around other courses and commitments in completing their course work.

Online courses are just as demanding as in-person classes and some students may find them more demanding and tiring, due to the amount of screen time. Students who have concerns about the workload and are able to reduce their course load to 3 courses may want to consider this option.
