FULL TITLE: RESOLUTION OF THE RECTOR OF THE UNIVERSITY OF GRANADA OF 23 MARCH 2021 ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT FROM 6 APRIL 2021 ONWARDS
In the Resolution of the Rector of 8 February 2021 on teaching activities at the beginning of the second semester of the 2020-21 academic year for degrees at the University of Granada, it was established — in order to provide greater certainty and facilitate the organisation of teaching activities — that the measures adopted would be maintained until Friday 26 March 2021, with said measures being reviewed before this date in light of the current epidemiological situation, with a view to the development of teaching activities until the end of the second semester.
This is the purpose of this Resolution, which is issued in accordance with the provisions of Article 21 of the Order of 29 October 2020 published by the Regional Ministry for Health and Family Affairs (CSF) of Andalusia (Extraordinary Official Gazette of the Regional Government of Andalusia [BOJA], no. 73 of 30 October 2020), on measures at university centres.
By virtue of the above, provided that the health authorities allow, and in accordance with current regulations, the Rector of the University of Granada hereby adopts the following measures with regard to the planning of teaching and assessment in the second semester:
One. In relation to teaching:
- For the remainder of the semester, teaching activities will be developed in accordance with the provisions of the Plan for the Adaptation of Teaching and Learning in the Academic Year 2020-21 to the Health Measures deriving from the Covid-19 Pandemic, approved in an extraordinary session of the Governing Council of the University of Granada on 25 June 2020. In this regard, teaching will resume in accordance with scenario A, based on a multimodal or hybrid teaching system that combines as much face-to-face teaching as possible with online classes (synchronous sessions) and remote training activities, so that students can learn autonomously. In all instances this system will be implemented in accordance with what is set out in the course guides, maintaining as much face-to-face activity as possible on bachelor's degrees, master's degrees, UGR-specific degrees, and lifelong learning programmes, respecting the established timetables.
- During the week of 6-9 April, classes will continue online while the faculties and schools, in coordination with the departments, prepare for the process of returning to the hybrid teaching system that will come into effect on Monday 12 April.
- In this hybrid teaching scenario, maximum flexibility will be maintained for students who are unable to take face-to-face classes.
- Laboratory sessions, experimental sessions, Practicums and Work Placements, fieldwork, clinical placements at centres that belong to the Andalusian Public Health System, or National Institute of Healthcare Management (INGESA) in the case of Ceuta and Melilla, as well as other planned placements, shall be maintained in a face-to-face (on-site) mode.
- The necessary documentation will be available to students, academic and research staff, and administrative and support staff to justify, where appropriate, travel.
- Tutorials and student support will preferably be delivered via technological means during the established timetable.
Two. In relation to evaluation and assessment:
- In accordance with the UGR's Plan for the Adaptation of Teaching and Learning in the Academic Year 2020-21 to the Health Measures deriving from the Covid-19 Pandemic, evaluation will preferably be based on continuous assessment. Likewise, final exams will be carried out in a face-to-face mode if they were planned as such in the course guide, taking into account the capacity limits approved by the health authorities. Exceptional circumstances or issues preventing students from travelling in order to carry out these face-to-face assessment exercises, however, will be taken into account.
- Remote assessment exercises will include mechanisms to guarantee the authorship of the exercises undertaken by students. In any case, adequate legal and security safeguards will be ensured at all times with regard to the fundamental rights to privacy and intimacy, taking into account the principle of proportionality.
Three. In relation to teaching and assessment at the university campuses of Ceuta and Melilla:
Following the criteria and guidelines of the health authorities of Ceuta and Melilla, the same scenario that has been in force until now will be maintained on both campuses, in accordance with the provisions of their respective contingency plans.
Four. In relation to other activities and services:
- From Monday 12 April onwards, canteens, libraries and study rooms will resume their on-site (in-person) services at faculties and schools with the capacity limits and conditions in place, as established in the Covid-19 action plans and regulations applicable to the provision of these services.
- Any scheduled institutional and academic events (public defences of doctoral theses, undergraduate dissertations (TFGs) and master's dissertations (TFMs); competitions for access to university teaching positions, etc.) may still be held on-campus.
- Language accreditation certification examinations planned for this period shall be held on-campus.
- University outreach and sports activities shall be held in accordance with the general specific norms applicable to this kind of activity.
- Likewise, research activities will continue to be carried out as normal, with hygiene and safety measures maintained in shared spaces/premises.
- The activities carried out by the UGR's administrative and support staff (PAS) will continue in line with the provisions of the Service Guidelines 4/20 of 29 October 2020, establishing the percentage of on-site attendance of staff to be maintained at centres, services, units and areas in which it is possible to carry out procedures remotely.
