A word from the Vice-Rector

In response to the health crisis in the spring semester of 2020, our university community showed a formidable capacity to adapt – which surveys have confirmed when access to buildings, classrooms, laboratories and libraries had suddenly become impossible. The shift to distance learning has involved teaching modalities and formats that are less familiar to many of us. It has generated stress, but at times also a sense of discovery that has provided a large array of opportunities.

In September, it is planned that teaching at the University of Geneva will resume face-to-face, provided that the physical distance of 1.5 m is respected, or that students keep their masks on. In order to ensure that quarantine and isolation measures are respected, as well as to take into account international travel restrictions, it must however be possible for students to attend classes without being physically present on campus. These particular and uncertain conditions imply a multimodal articulation between on-site and distance learning. We are here to accompany you during these changes and help you chose the online and blended teaching formats and approaches that best suit and do justice to the quality of your content.
