Notes

  1. This is a Hybrid/blended course that has both online synchronous and in-classroom meetings. The online synchronous weeks require regular attendance to scheduled lectures and provides real-time interaction with your instructor and classmates. In-classroom meetings are conventional on campus face-to-face format. Both the online synchronous meetings and in-classroom meetings are held on the same day and time each week. Campus and room location are as noted on the course registration information above. This Hybrid/blended course has more than 50% of the prescribed meeting time as “on campus in-classroom” and is therefore eligible for International Students to use as part of their “in-classroom” program requirement.
  2. Important course information will be sent to you prior to your course start date. Check your myBCIT email account to access this information.
