Members of the Contract Teaching Faculty bargaining unit:

Courses posted with the letters "OC" following the course number, are designated Online Courses. If the posting is absent of "OC" it is a course normally taught on campus, but during COVID-19 this course may be taught remotely. Courses created specifically for online instruction have been collaboratively designed by a content expert (normally a faculty member) and an instructional designer and digital media and educational technology specialists. Online course development is guided by instructional design strategies and makes use of pedagogically led technology. Online courses are intentionally developed for instructors and students to be separated by space (location) and/or time (often both).
Remote instruction, as the term is used here, uses technology-enabled tools and software to facilitate course delivery when in-person instruction is not possible in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. "Remote" instruction is not directly comparable to "online course" instruction. The difference is not in the quality of the content, but in the design of content delivery.
Laurier is committed to increasing the diversity of faculty and staff and welcomes applications from candidates who identify as Indigenous, racialized, having disabilities, and from persons of any minority sexual identities and gender identities.
