According to the AMU press office, lecturers can conduct classes remotely from their place of residence or from the university. It all depends on the internal arrangements in the departments.
What about administration employees?
The published ordinance added that “distance learning is carried out in accordance with the applicable study plan in a way that allows synchronous interaction between students and an academic teacher or other educators. The Dean draws up a list of such classes and immediately informs the students about it “- underlined.
Which activities cannot be carried out remotely? For example, those requiring specialized equipment or presence in a studio or laboratory. As we found out on Thursday in the AMU press office, the list of such classes has not been prepared yet. Work is also underway on a regulation that will define how the administration employees will perform their duties.
