University of Eastern Finland has moved all teaching online - most of the university's teaching will be offered online also in the autumn semester
(Updated 29 May 2020 at 14.00.)
Most of the university’s teaching will continue to be offered online also in the autumn semester. Restrictions and guidelines issued by the authorities will be followed at all times in order to ensure safety and security.
Only teaching that is deemed crucial to be offered as in-person teaching will be organised as in-person teaching in the autumn semester 2020. By a decision of the dean, laboratory courses, field courses, internships deemed necessary, and other teaching that is impossible or unreasonably hard to organise online, can be offered as in-person teaching. In addition, in-person teaching can also be organised for new students in order to foster their commitment to their academic subject and to the academic community.
In-person teaching is organised with safety in mind. The Finnish Government’s restrictions on gatherings and other safety recommendations in effect at each time are followed in the organisation of teaching. From 1 June onwards, gatherings are limited to 50 persons, and this is applied to in-person teaching so that a maximum of 50 people, including the teacher, may be in the same room at a time, and with people keeping a safety distance of 1.5–2 metres.
