What to expect in the winter semester 2020/21

It is now becoming increasingly clear that in the coming academic year 20/21 a return to the usual lecture schedule will not be possible. The University of Vienna explicitly assumes (at least) one more "corona semester" and plans to establish a central lecture hall allocation for the entire university.

In principle, the University of Vienna will base its planning for teaching operations from October onwards on the regulations currently applicable in Austria for the organisation of events (e.g. theatre, congresses, further education: https://www.ris.bka.gv.at/GeltendeFassung.wxe?Abfrage=Bundesnormen&Gesetzesnummer=20011162

The faculty management is in agreement that opportunities for face-to-face teaching should continue to be used as far as possible and sensible. However, these are subject to the clear primacy of distance and hygiene rules which must be fulfilled. This means in particular that the lecture halls can only be filled to a capacity of 33%-50%. 

Nevertheless, the aim is to make the best possible use of the available room capacities for presence teaching under the given restrictions. Against this background, there will be 3 different ways of teaching in the winter semester: 

  • Classroom teaching - as far as possible for virological reasons
  • Digital teaching - online and/or offline
  • Hybrid forms

Safety and studyability

Your health is important to us, and the infection should not spread. Therefore, if you notice the symptoms of COVID-19 on the day of the course itself or in the days before, please stay at home. The same applies if the symptoms occur in people in your environment.

Your safety and health is very important to us, therefore there is a plan B for almost all courses. If you have to go into quarantine, please contact the teacher directly. 

 

 

What do you need for a successful semester during Covid-19?

  • It will be necessary to follow part of the teaching digitally, so we advise you to equip yourself digitally (laptop/tablet/smartphone, battery pack, headset, sufficient data volume at home...)
  • There will be little space in the student areas/reading rooms, so we advise you to set up a comfortable workplace at home
  • MNS and disinfectants should always be taken with you when you come to university
  • You are obliged to register as usual for the courses at the beginning of the semester. For large lectures there will be a booking system for the individual dates to avoid large crowds of people. Details will follow shortly. 
  • In the interest of fairness towards colleagues, it is your duty to cancel courses or individual units in a timely manner.
  • As members of a risk group, they should clarify your needs with the teachers/SPL in good time. Details can be found here
