    Message from the Provost on teaching, learning and work arrangements (Circular 10)  21/02/2020

    Dear Students and Colleagues,

    Teaching and Learning

    With the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the University has decided to resort to using online learning since 3 February 2020 after the suspension of the face-to-face classes in campus. We are eager to resume our face-to-face classes, but before we can do so we shall further improve and enhance the effectiveness of our online teaching and learning. Besides the 'on-demand' lectures that students can access anytime anywhere over the past few weeks, Schools will increase real-time online tutorials and other interactive activities in the coming weeks.

    The real-time learning environment will enable more online interaction and students are encouraged to participate as you will not be learning alone, and you can always reach out to your professors and get connected with fellow students if you have any questions.

    You are welcome to provide your professors with suggestions on any enhancement of the online learning arrangements to further facilitate your learning. With our devoted faculty members working together with our students, I am confident that the disruption to the suspension of the face-to-face classes will be minimized.

    For students who need to come to campus to use the library or the Computer Lab, please observe the limited opening hours and get the latest update on the University website.

    Work Arrangements

    The University has decided to continue practice special work arrangements till Sunday, 1 March 2020 (inclusive). However, in anticipation of the need to gradually resume normal academic and administrative activities and services, especially for preparation of class resumption on 30 March 2020, Deans/Directors/Heads will make necessary transitional arrangements to gradually ramp up service level beginning next week and will communicate with staff accordingly. The University is hopeful that normal business and work arrangements can be resumed with effect from Monday, 2 March 2020.

    Please stay vigilant and put health as your top priority!

    Warmest Regards,

    Prof. Reggie Kwan
