UPDATE: The timetable for Fall/Winter and Winter 2021-22 courses has been updated to reflect the University's decision to offer almost all courses remotely for the first 6 weeks of Winter Term. Be sure to check to see how your course will be offered when the University returns to in-person teaching.

Remote delivery of courses is divided up into three major types:

LIVE ONLINE: Scheduled class times will take place using an online platform. Students must be available during the posted lecture times for live streaming and/or group interactions.

NEXUS ONLY: Course material is delivered asynchronously through nexus.uwinnipeg.ca.

HYBRID ONLINE: Online + live components. Students must be available during the posted lecture times for live streaming and/or group interactions. Section material is accessed via nexus.uwinnipeg.ca.

Students with questions, or who need permission forms signed, should consult with the English Department Chair.
