In the fall of 2020, the CALT website is featuring updates from law professors about how their institutions are responding to the challenge of teaching during a pandemic.
The University of Alberta Faculty of Law has moved to largely online delivery of the curriculum, with some exceptions for approved seminars, clinic courses, and a handful of lecture classes which could be taught in a safe environment or with rotating small group sessions.
The Faculty has created a Remote Planning Delivery Committee to devise best practices for remote teaching and provide guidance to instructors. In addition, the Faculty conducted training sessions for both sessional and full-time instructors over the summer on the pedagogical and technical aspects of remote teaching. Thus far things are going well and there have been no technical or other issues with the online delivery of courses.
