Faculty of Education Program Delivery – Fall 2020 (COVID-19 Updates)

COVID-19 has been an unprecedented crisis and requires us to carefully balance the desire to return to regular program delivery with the need to keep our students and community safe and healthy.

Queen’s has worked with public health to develop a university-wide plan to bring students back to in-person classes gradually over the course of the 2020-21 academic year.

Under this plan, all B.Ed. courses will be offered remotely in the fall 2020 term.
