Teaching at UiA will be mostly digital throughout January. The university is now planning what courses can be taught on campus from February. Our Campuses are still open.
Update 19 January: Maximum 60 students per on-campus teaching session
Following changes in the government’s recommendations on 18 January, the strategic crisis management team at UiA has updated the university’s coronavirus regulations.
Teaching where equipment or other infrastructure on campus is necessary will be carried out as scheduled, even before February. The faculty directors will decide which courses this applies to.
Following an overall assessment and discussions with the municipal medical officers in Grimstad and Kristiansand, UiA has decided that 60 is the maximum number of students allowed to gather for teaching activities. The decision is based on infection control considerations and the commitment to offer all students on-campus teaching at least one day a week, as the government requested.
The amount of on-campus teaching will be increased from 1 February, and UiA is now planning how to organise this. All students will receive information about course changes through Canvas as soon as possible, and no later than 27 January.
Employees who can work from home, should continue to do so. The faculty directors and directors of administrative divisions coordinate this in each university unit. Staff are to contact their nearest leader to coordinate this.
Postponed exams in week 8 and 9 will proceed as planned.
