Proposed Delivery Mode
All instructional interaction occurs without the student and instructor being in the same physical location. Instructional materials may be presented synchronously or asynchronously. At maximum, one in-person assessment (including final exams) may be required per half-credit course. The in-person assessment must be declared during the timetabling process.
Greater than one-third of the course contact hours will occur online (either synchronously or asynchronously). Assessments may be online or in-class. Involves a balance of scheduled in-person and (usually synchronous) online activities appropriate to the learning outcomes of the course.
The course will be offered online during summer terms only and in-person during the Fall and/ or Winter term(s).
The course may be offered either online, hybrid, or in-person in any given academic term.
Academic units that wish to utilize sessional instructors for online/ hybrid delivery of courses must confirm that a Quercus shell with the course structure and basic course materials that will ensure course objectives are met will be set up by the permanent faculty instructor and provided to sessional instructors in advance of the course.
For each course component (L, T, P, S), please provide the proposed mode of delivery. 
Example: Total Hours of Instruction = 24L (12 asynchronous; 12 in-person); 12T (12 in-person)
Please provide a brief rationale for shifting the course delivery mode. Consider how the course and delivery mode aligns with the academic unit's/ discipline's vision and/ or long-term plans; how the change impacts the unit's existing programs; how the change fits into the unit's curriculum map; and what the advantages to students will be. For “Online - Summer Only” and "Flexible Delivery" courses, you must consider and speak to the impact multiple delivery modes will have with respect to these elements.
Please provide a BRIEF description of how the change in delivery mode will continue to ensure that course objectives are achieved. For courses that may be core/ required for a program, the academic unit's ability to maintain program learning outcomes should also be considered. For “Online - Summer Only” and "Flexible Delivery" courses, it must be made clear how course objectives will be maintained across the various delivery modes.
