Student viewing online lecture

Support for MD Program Lectures

Teaching in 2021/2022

Lectures will be mostly presented in-person in the classrooms and broadcast using Zoom, starting after Labour Day 2021. Please refer to instructions sent to you by the course director and administrator for further details about from where you will deliver your lecture. The MD classrooms at both the St. George and UTM campuses will be open to a limited number of students when the fall term begins, likely accommodating more as the year progresses. Students who do not come to the university for class will participate online from home or other location. Lectures will be delivered via Zoom, both from the classrooms and other locations. Students in the classrooms will not use the microphones; all students, in the classrooms and online, will use the Zoom Q & A tool for questions. Please read the articles below for more information.
