Distance delivery format

Distance delivery format

A web-based virtual classroom environment complements all SCYC distance courses. Our virtual classrooms house core resources such as the course guide, assignments, links to relevant readings and more.

Our distance courses are designed to make practice come to life through the exchange, development and extension of ideas. Email, threaded discussion, wikis and chat are some of the many features that may be included in our course design. Your learning experience may also be enhanced through the use of other technologies such as SKYPE or YouTube. Some courses may require or recommend real-time connection.  Check the schedule, syllabus and description carefully. You may also find the Teaching Integrated Learning website to be a useful resource.

Remember, while most of your program can be completed in the comfort of your home community, all distance students are required to come to campus to participate in a ten-day seminar to fulfill core course requirements for CYC 475.

Technical requirements

On-site seminars

Our required 3-unit  seminar course (CYC 475) involves a ten-day seminar.  You will explore current issues in the human services field, practice skills and connect with your peers. You are required to attend the class for the full session. All seminars require substantial course work to be completed outside of the seminar times. Pre and post course assignments may be required. For a course description please see the UVic calendar. Seminars are held at the University of Victoria campus

Intensive seminars give you the opportunity to

  • Connect with the school
  • Build connections with fellow students
  • Focus on a single course, set of skills or subject area
  • Exchange information and ideas

NOTE:  On occassion we may also offer special topics or core courses in seminar formats.
