Reopening CUE for the 2020-21 Academic Year

In-Person Courses at CUE for Fall 2020

Limited in-person courses to be available

Our reopening plan for the fall 2020 semester is to provide predominantly remote course delivery combined with some very limited in-person experiences. Although the Alberta Relaunch Strategy has now advanced to Stage 2 the very complex set of circumstances universities face has not changed as a result of this announcement, and there continues to be unacceptable risk and significant logistical problems associated with a full return to normal in-person course delivery in the fall. I wrote about why this is the case last week.

*Note: Due to updates to mask requirements, some changes have been made to course delivery as at August 13, 2020.


In-person courses

The following courses are offered entirely on-campus and in-person at CUE for fall 2020. We have limited numbers in some in order to satisfy physical distancing requirements. In-person attendance for these courses will be mandatory because parallel virtual versions are not being offered, so students should only register for them if they are willing to physically attend campus.

In addition, the following courses are offered via a hybrid model of some in-person classes and some virtual classes. We have limited numbers in some in order to satisfy physical distancing requirements. In-person attendance for some of the classes in these courses will be mandatory because parallel virtual sessions are not being offered. Students should only register for them if they are willing to physically attend campus.

The room would hold 3 people: the faculty member, the student, and a pianist. At present, enrolment for this class is not expected to exceed 6 students. Health and safety measures would be in place.  Everyone would wear masks and remain at a safe physical distance.  Students would provide their own music stand or wipe down a CUE music stand before and after use.  The piano would be wiped down before and after use similar to the protocol used in the practice rooms. The same pianist would play for all practice sessions and exams.)

We are hoping for a full campus-wide return to our normal mostly in-person course delivery in winter 2021, although we will need to continue to monitor the situation in Alberta. There is no date yet for a decision on that. In the meantime, we hope that the easing of COVID-19 restrictions will present greater opportunities for appropriately managed social and other interactions on campus in the fall semester, even as we continue to offer a predominantly online education experience.
