Teach Newsletter n°36: An academic year under the sign of adaptation: the Teaching...
The latest decisions of the Federal Council rule out the possibility of offering in person teaching to all students. Of the two options authorised by the Federal Ordinance, UNIL has chosen the use of the COVID certificate, as it allows more students to be present than the alternative of limiting classroom capacity to two-thirds. The modalities of the extension of the COVID certificate to Vaud higher education institutions will be detailed by the political authorities in the second half of this week. One of the scenarios on which the Rectorate of UNIL is working, and which is in line with its desire to guarantee the best possible teaching to all students, is the obligation for the universities to offer an alternative to in person teaching to students who will not be able to attend classes from next week. All courses must be able to be adapted to this eventuality. The Rectorate would like to thank all the teachers for their efforts to prepare to this last minute constraint. This newsletter is intended to help them do so.
