2020-21 Courses

Registration is now open for Fall/Winter, and our 2020-21 courses will primarily be offered online or via alternate modes of delivery. Section material is accessed via nexus.uwinnipeg.caView our current course listings below, noting that this schedule is subject to change. See WebAdvisor for the latest updates. 

Wondering what to expect from your online courses? UWinnipeg is using the categories Nexus, Nexus+, and Live to let you know. On WebAdvisor, refer to the Notes column to find the delivery method for a specific course. 

Nexus: The course is completely asynchronous. All materials will be made available online on Nexus for you to access and study independently. There are no expectations for you to virtually ‘attend’ any classes or sessions.

Nexus+: The course is a hybrid of synchronous and asynchronous study. Some materials will be made available online on Nexus for you to access and study independently, but you will also be expected to virtually ‘attend’ some classes or sessions (e.g., group discussions). Any of these ‘live’ sessions would occur during the dates and times listed for the course on WebAdvisor. More detailed information will be available on the course outline, or you can contact the instructor if you have any questions about how the course will run.

Live: The course is completely synchronous. You will be expected to virtually ‘attend’ all classes according to the WebAdvisor schedule as though the class were in-person.
