ACADEMIC CONTINUITY PREPARATIONS AMID COVID-19 OUTBREAK

Subsequent to the recent and ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, the university is closely monitoring the situation. As the situation continues to change rapidly, our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our community on campus. We are planning for several contingency scenarios and taking decisive, informed action to limit the spread of COVID-19 while ensuring the continuity of our teaching and research mission. The University remains open and operational with appropriate measures to protect the health of the community. We will continue to update the community regularly to keep you informed of additional measures.

We have decided to move online and provide remote instructions. The goal of these social distancing measures is to limit the number of instances where community members are gathering in large groups and spending periods of time in close proximity with each other in classrooms, labs and common rooms. By reducing the number and proximity of people on campus, we can slow the potential transmission of the virus and limit exposure for all members of our community especially those most vulnerable.

Teaching and Learning Activities

Effective 13 March 2020 and until further notice

  • We will begin transitioning to online instruction via university moodle (http://moodle.utb.edu.bn/lms/login/index.php) for all undergraduate and graduate classes.
  • This transition is expected to be completed by 30 March 2020. At this time, these measures are in place until further notice. If and when a change is warranted, we will give as much notice as possible to the lecturers and students.

Transitioning to online and remote instruction and other academic disruption is a significant adjustment for everyone. We are committed to providing support.

  • Students who need to remain on campus for extenuating circumstances (such as international students and students from other districts) will also receive instruction remotely and must prepare for severely limited on-campus activities and interactions.
  • ICTC is working closely with the Faculty/School to ensure continuity and stability of services throughout this period.
  • Faculty/School have already received guidance and recommendations to teach remotely, and we will continue to leverage our expertise in the science of learning to ensure the continuity of our teaching and research mission.
