NEW for 2016 - Collaborative learning using a common curriculum across a shared platform between all six northern Ontario colleges!

When enrolled in our (2035) business program, you will use curriculum developed jointly by faculty and deans of six northern colleges that meets the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities guidelines. Unless you are starting the program in January, your first year of classes will all be in a traditional classroom setting. In the second year and further, you may have some of your classes along with a number of students from other Colleges, brought together by a learning management system and web-based conferencing. The Professor in these classes may be from your home college or may be from one of the other colleges assigned to teach that course.

Collaborative programming provides a common curriculum and a single course outline for each course in this program at all six northern colleges. You will learn the same material no matter which of the six colleges you are attending. The curriculum can be delivered across a shared platform using the full breadth of faculty resources from all the northern colleges. Course delivery combines and includes students who have scheduled lessons in the same classroom as the professor, students in a classroom remote from the professor and/or studying from a location away from any classroom, but with connection to the internet. All students will have the ability to participate in class. Sessions will also be recorded for later review.
