School of Biology Teaching Recording Policy - Fall Semester 2022


Live broadcasting, and availability of teaching recordings for a duration of one week:

  • BSc1 ex-cathedra courses* – biology & pharmacy
  • BSc2 ex-cathedra courses

No teaching recording**:

  • BSc1 & BSc2 Exercise and Practical Work Sessions
  • BSc2 & BSc3 - Optional courses
  • BSc3
  • Masters (BEC, MLS, MB)

*Exception for courses given on the EPFL site

**Exception possible for pedagogical purposes upon teacher's request



Despite the ubiquity of COVID-19 cases, the Fall semester of the next academic year appears to be shaping up to be entirely face-to-face.

However, the School of Biology Council (as of June 23, 2022) has decided that the 1st and 2nd year ex-cathedra Bachelor's courses will continue to be broadcasted and recorded. The reasons for this are to provide a solution for the exceeded capacity of the auditoriums compared to the number of students enrolled, and to support the learning of students with disabilities (hearing impaired, dyslexic, etc.), non-French speakers, or students enrolled in the minor in physiology whose schedules are sometimes incompatible.

However, in order to guarantee a regular follow-up of the curriculum without putting students at risk of accumulating a deleterious delay, these recordings will only be available for a period of one week.

For the 3rd year of the Bachelor's program, as well as for all our Master's programs, the teaching will be entirely and only face-to-face, without video recording, considering the lower number of students and the more interactive and personalized teaching formats.

This broadcasting policy will be re-evaluated at the end of the fall semester. It will then be decided whether or not it should be renewed in the spring semester
