Northern Lights College moves to alternative methods of instruction

Northern Lights College is applying the recommendations by the provincial health officer in response to the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, to education.

“The wellbeing and safety of our students, faculty, and staff is our utmost priority, now and always,” said M. Bryn Kulmatycki, president and chief executive officer of NLC. “Changing how we teach and test our students allows them to continue their education while suppressing the transmission of the virus.”

NLC is not aware of a single case of COVID-19 affecting the college.

For the past two days, the college temporarily suspended classes to give faculty time to work out what suitable alternative methods of instruction and assessment look like, course by course, program by program. Given the diversity and nature of the college’s programs, there is no single solution, but it is the college’s stated goal to move as much programming to online delivery as possible.

Classes will resume on site tomorrow, when students will hear from their instructors what form instruction for the rest of their term will take.
