Many students may be concerned with how economics courses will operate in the Fall 2021 semester. The University of Lethbridge is committed to returning to in-person instruction, however, this requires approval from the provincial government. Courses that have specific days, times and rooms for lectures are intended to be delivered in-person but may change if circumstances change. If an ECON course has no day or time designation on the Registrar's timetable web page, it is asynchronous. This means that course is offered online without specific lecture days and times. Lectures are recorded by the instructor and made available on the course Moodle page. Courses can also be synchronous if taught online. These courses have specific days and times for online lectures. Office hours will be made available in person and via Zoom for student consultations with the ECON course instructor.
Course outlines, readings and assignments will all be provided to students electronically by the course instructor. The method of delivery of graded materials will be decided by the instructor. Several online systems for turning in assignments and exams (CrowdMark, enhanced Moodle, etc.) have been obtained by the Faculty of Arts & Science, however, the use of these systems is determined by the course instructor.
Textbooks will be available from the university bookstore - some are physical copies and the rest are online copies. The bookstore has textbook lists for each course and information on how to obtain textbooks. The library stacks will be available, as well as online books, journals, databases and other materials from the library webpage.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your ECON course, please contact the instructor.
