With so much having changed and so many of our students' original plans for the next few months cancelled or put on hold, MacEwan University has responded by expanding its offering of Spring/Summer term courses.
“Spring/Summer term presents a great opportunity for students to keep focused on their programs between May and August, and they can often choose a pace that fits their circumstances,” says Dr. Craig Monk, MacEwan University’s provost & vice-president, Academic.
Because the number of students logging on for the Spring/Summer term increased substantially this year, this seemed like the perfect time to provide some tips to get you ready for the upcoming term.
Academic integrity rules still apply even when you’re learning online: cite your sources, check with your faculty member before collaborating with others, don’t submit the same work for two or more different courses, and more.
Know your limits. While taking Spring/Summer courses is a good way to get ahead in your studies, make sure you haven’t bitten off more than you can chew. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, Wellness and Psychological Services is online to help you.
And if this is not a good time at all for you to learn and study, that’s okay. We support your efforts to help yourself. Again, if you wish to access mental health services, please contact Wellness and Psychological Services.
