Strategy for the realization of the remaining teaching activities of the academic year 2019/20 as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic
Based on measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 virus, in defense of the health of students, academic and non-academic staff, families and society as a whole, unable to physically hold the lesson, the University “Haxhi Zeka” Peja since 19.03.2020, has officially started and is successfully continuing to hold the virtual lesson.
However, due to certain specifics of some subjects of the two academic units of UHZ that require holding laboratory exercises or field practice, the organization of distance learning has not been possible.
Given that we are now in the ninth week of the summer semester of the academic year 2019/20 and the situation with COVID-19 pandemic continues to be serious, UHZ is analyzing the possibilities of carrying out the remaining teaching activities including those mentioned above, according to the manner and deadlines as follows:
Academic units to analyze and develop their “Output Strategies” for the implementation of the remaining learning activities from the curriculum according to these scenarios:
a) Scenario I: Return to facilities until May 20, 2020.
Some of the remaining learning activities to be carried out remotely through the virtual platform, while the rest of the activities take place in the learning facilities.
b) Scenario II: Return to facilities until June 1, 2020.
Part of the remaining learning activities to be carried out remotely through the virtual platform during the month of May (where possible), while the rest of the activities take place in classrooms during the first two weeks of June 2020.
c) Scenario III: Return to facilities after June 15, 2020.
All remaining teaching activities should be carried out remotely through the virtual platform using the best practices for the respective subject in order for students to be informed virtually with the content of this part of the course.
The implementation of the above-mentioned scenarios requires that the June exam deadline be flexible and can move as needed for each academic unit, but should end no later than July 25, 2020.
The proposed strategies should take into account the possibility for students to take the exam in a certain subject that enables students to gain the necessary competencies after completing a certain level of study.
