Transforming blended and online learning
In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic transformed how UCalgary delivered education. With six weeks left in the winter semester, the campus community transitioned 6,000 face-to-face courses into an online environment to ensure the safety of staff and students.
It is clearer than ever that UCalgary needs an integrated strategy for distance learning, one that is aligned with our vision, our principles and our foundational commitments. A $1 million gift from the Flanagan Foundation provided us with a unique opportunity to catalyze and set a bold new vision for blended and online learning on campus.
This initiative is dedicated to catalyzing engagement and innovation in blended and online learning across faculties at UCalgary over a three-year period from 2020-23.
This initiative builds on the strong foundation of blended and online learning at UCalgary and capitalizes on key learnings from the rapid transition to remote teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic.
