A note on the transition to online teaching in Winter Term 1, 2020:

All ACAM courses in Winter Term 1, 2020 (ACAM 250 and ACAM 300) will be delivered online to align with UBC Faculty of Arts’ efforts in supporting the health and safety of our students, staff, and faculty. As both ACAM 250 and ACAM 300 will have synchronous activities (for example, real-time lectures, group discussions, drop-in hours) and asynchronous components (for example, online modules and discussion forums), please plan your course schedule as you normally would with in-person teaching.
