    Teaching and Learning Arrangements for 2021 Summer Term (Circular 42)  08/04/2021

    Dear Students,

    We hope you are doing well and your study in the 2021 Spring Term is progressing smoothly.

    I am writing to share with you the University’s plan for learning and teaching in the 2021 Summer Term, which will start on 15 June 2021 for undergraduate and postgraduate programmes; and on 28 June 2021 for part-time distance learning programmes.

    1. Lectures and Tutorials

    In view of the recent improvement of the pandemic situation, the University will adopt mixed-mode teaching for both lectures and tutorials for the 2021 Summer Term. Lectures and tutorials will basically be delivered by face-to-face and real-time interactive modes simultaneously^. As in this term, interactive mode will be conducted by using Zoom.

    Students have the option of attending the lectures and tutorials in person while maintaining social distancing* in the classroom or attending classes online. Non-local students should decide their travel plan according to their personal situation and closely monitor the quarantine requirements imposed by the Hong Kong SAR Government. Non-local students are welcome to consult the latest information on Covid-19 website.

    ^ Some postgraduate courses may have special arrangements. Please pay attention to the email announcement by the respective School / instructor.

    * The University will make every effort to allow all students to choose to attend classes in person. However, in case the class size of some courses become too big for all students to attend classes in person while maintaining social distancing, some students may have to be placed in an overflow classroom to attend classes by real-time interactive mode. The University will make necessary arrangements based on the corresponding situation.

    2. Laboratory Sessions, Practicums and Others

    Laboratory Sessions and Practicum will be conducted in small groups as appropriate. Schools will make suitable arrangement for individual courses and inform students separately.

    3. Course Assessment

    In addition to continuous assessment, where applicable, course assessment can take the form of on-campus written examination, online examination or take-home examination / assignment etc. as deemed appropriate and necessary. Announcement of the form of examination will be made well in advance of the examination period. Students who have difficulty in attending on-campus examination in person are encouraged to contact their instructors for assistance once the examination arrangement is known.

    Please keep observing social distancing and maintaining good personal and environmental hygiene practices. Take care and stay healthy!
