Fall 2020 Delivery Methods
When Red River College moved to online program delivery as a result of COVID-19 in March, the College developed a Flexible Online Delivery Model to ensure that in spite of the pandemic, the quality of our online teaching and learning continues to meet the high standards that set RRC apart.
We recognize that for some of our programs, hands-on learning and training are essential. In fact, some students are already returning to campus to complete hands-on learning this summer.
We’ll continue offering critical hands-on training on campus this fall – but in a modified way. Our team has worked hard to assess all our spaces to ensure we can offer hands-on learning while still complying with public health guidelines. Some of the health and safety measures you’ll find on campus include:
- Signage, floor markers and barriers to help staff and students maintain physical distance in all accessible spaces.
- Hand sanitizers throughout our facilities to help prevent the spread of infection.
- A clear process to follow before and during your return to campus.

At this time, we anticipate that our Fall 2020 term will coincide with Phase 3 of our re-entry plan.
As we move to the fall term, and more staff and staff and students come to our campuses for hands-on learning, here’s what you can expect:
- For Fall 2020, Red River College will deliver courses online wherever possible
- Courses or course components will be scheduled on campus only where face-to-face learning is essential.
In-person delivery of programs (or parts of programs) is considered essential where:
- The physical use of tools or equipment is required and alternatives are not possible
- Learning outcomes cannot be delivered in alternative forms, and the learning outcome is required for graduation, is a critical piece of the program, or required for accreditation
- Barriers to education exist that can only be addressed through in-person delivery
The proportion and timing of any on-campus learning will vary by program. For instance, on-campus learning may only be offered for selected days or weeks of the term.
If you have any questions about your specific program, or your program isn’t listed below, please contact your program coordinator.
