1F. Supporting Our Students

Section 1: Toolkit

Instructors and faculty member should be communicating with all students about whether or not they have internet access. Internet access should not be assumed.  

Please consider that some of our students are feeling anxious about their courses and self-isolation.  Please consider acknowledging that “this is an unprecedented situation” and “we will be working carefully with students to make sure they are safe and have fair access to complete their studies.”  Students should self-identity if they have concerns with course materials so that alternative arrangements can be made.  Please reach out to any student you are concerned about to make sure there are no additional concerns.  Finally, instructors can encourage students to be “positive and take the opportunity to learn about how to cope in this new learning environment.” Student supports are available through University of Winnipeg Counselling.
