Creating a safe learning environment for students
Personal connections and a face-to-face learning environment are what truly elevates the post-secondary experience. It can improve your learning experience, result in lifelong friendships and enhance your mental wellness.
At MCG, we pride ourselves on a flexible learning environment with a balance of online learning and in-person classes to allow our students to better connect with their fellow students and instructors. While MCG has been operating 100 per cent in the virtual world during the pandemic, we are excited to officially reopen for on-campus learning this summer and for the fall semester.
Our Red Deer and Cold Lake campuses opened earlier in June and Calgary campus will be buzzing with students starting on Monday, July 6.
“When you are training healthcare workers, one of the top priorities is ensuring the graduates are safe before they go into industry, says Carmen Sheridan, Dean of MCG Career College. “While virtual learning can play an important role in training, it is vital we work closely with students to review their competencies and conduct assessments to ensure they are well trained and ready to safely and effectively support industry when they graduate.
Creating a safe learning environment
The health and safety of our students and faculty remains our top priority through this time. With small class sizes, we can effectively train students while respecting physical distancing guidelines and other safety protocols.
Here are just a few of the safety standards we are following. For a full overview of our relaunch policies and procedures, please click here.
- Staff, students, visitors and volunteers who access MCG campuses for any reason are requested to screen for symptoms every day using the AHS COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool.
- Classroom tables will be spaced out to allow for two metres of physical distancing and students will be assigned a table for the duration of their program.
- When practical skills training requires students and/or instructor(s) to come within two metres of one another, those involved will be required to wear PPE
- Proper hand hygiene is required of all staff, students and visitors to campus.
- All campus visitors must phone and make an appointment ahead of time to visit campus. No walk-in traffic will be permitted.
Registration is open for September
We will be maintaining small class sizes to ensure the health and safety of our students, which means limited spaces are available for every program.
