During this time of remote learning environment, the PTACs do not have access
to Official Files. If there are documents you submitted to your Official File
you would like the PTAC to use in the review of your application, you will
need to include those documents when applying for positions.
All job postings will be for in-person teaching, unless they are indicated
"OC" for Online Course or "Remote" for remote teaching. OC and Remote teaching
is defined below.
Courses created specifically for online instruction have been collaboratively
designed by a content expert (normally a faculty member) and an
instructional designer and digital media and educational technology
specialists. Online course development is guided by instructional design
strategies and makes use of pedagogically led technology. Online courses are
intentionally developed for instructors and students to be separated by space
(location) and/or time (often both).
Remote instruction, as the term is used here, uses technology-enabled tools
and software to facilitate course delivery when in-person instruction is not
possible in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. "Remote" instruction is not
directly comparable to "online course" instruction. The difference is not in
the quality of the content, but in the design of content delivery.
All Laurier employees and students are required to comply with the
University's Covid-19 mandatory vaccination policy. Prior to attending
Laurier's campuses in-person, you must provide proof of your vaccination
status. Prior to becoming fully vaccinated, you will be required to
participate in and comply with the University's rapid testing program and
follow all recommended additional health and safety protocols. Details about
the mandatory vaccination requirements can be found on Laurier's website.
In-person teaching will be supported by classroom safety and hygiene protocols
aligned with public health guidelines in effect at the time and will adhere to
any COVID-19 related university policies including the COVID-19 face covering
policy. Questions related to classroom safety protocols can be directed to
SHERM (email@example.com). Questions related to employment accommodation
needs can be directed to the confidential Health & Abilities team in Human
