Planning your Courses

As we prepare for the start of the 2021/22 academic year, we are confident that we will be able to safely return to our campuses with our signature small class size experiences delivered on-campus, the return of our hands-on experiential learning opportunities, as well as hybrid course offerings and a mix of online and Zoom courses.

We will be ready and look forward to your safe and gradual return back to our campuses where you can actively engage in your learning with the support from our Lakehead University community.

Online Courses Explained: Synchronous and Asynchronous

Some of our courses for the Fall 2021 term will be delivered in some form of online delivery to accommodate the diverse range of Lakehead students. This includes synchronous and asynchronous online learning.

What does that mean to you?

  • In synchronous delivered courses, the instructor and students are all online at the same time, and the material is delivered in real time using methods such as Zoom. Students can ask questions, take tests, or participate in discussions online while the instructor is available to assist them. Denoted as "Zoom" on the Course Timetable.
  • In asynchronous delivered methods, online course delivery is self-paced with course materials (lectures, readings, forums, assessments, etc.) made available for students to access and engage with on their own schedule. There are still deadlines, and some instructors will release materials on a week-by-week basis rather than all at once, but students can usually decide how and when they will work through the course materials. Denoted as "Web-Based" on the Course Timetable.
