King’s Announces Continuation of Hybrid Model for Winter 2021 Term

King's hybrid model of learning—which includes online courses with optional in-person/on-campus components—will continue into the Winter term, with the first three weeks held entirely online.

This winter, The King’s University will continue with its hybrid model of course delivery. This method, which offers online courses with opportunities for weekly in-person classes and labs, saw great success in the Fall semester. King’s is committed to ensuring exceptional and equitable learning opportunities for its students by maintaining on-campus experiences as long as it is safe to do so.

Classes will be held exclusively online for the first three weeks of January, though labs, choir, and private music instruction will be allowed to continue on campus during this time. Students will have the option to attend weekly in-person classes beginning January 25; this will reduce the number of people on campus immediately following Christmas break.

As Alberta declared a state of public health emergency November 24, King’s has heard directly from Alberta Health Services and the provincial government that there are no further measures or restrictions for the university at this time. Currently, Alberta’s post-secondary institutions are not causing transmission concerns and can continue to deliver education in their current forms while adhering to health restrictions such as limited class size and cleaning protocols.
