Teaching at Dalarna University
Teaching and examinations that are normally campus-based will instead be net-based and “blended” this this spring and autumn 2021, but with some changes in early November. You can find out what applies for your programme or course on Learn, our learning management system.
Until further notice, the following applies:
- Doors to university buildings and facilities will remain locked up to and including August 23, 2021 so as to limit access to the general public. Students and staff will continue to have access using their keycards.
From the semester start (August 30):
All forms of examination and other practical components/skills training can be held on campus. Look in to Learn to know about your programme or course.
From study period 2 (early November), unless stated otherwise:R eturning to the forms of teaching stated in the course and programme syllabi is encouraged: that is to say, teaching on campus can resume for all courses and programmes. It will be possible to study English taught degree programmes online during the entire autumn semester.
The university recommends blended learning as the form of instruction, and teachers should plan accordingly. This will allow students to take part in their courses even if they develop covid-19 symptoms and have to stay at home.
Please note that while campus based education may resume, social distancing requirements limit the number of people allowed in each classroom so even when campus based education is possible, you might need to study online.
- The following are to have priority on campus until early November:
- Examinations that cannot be taken by distance
- Practical modules/skills training or practical examinations
- Newly admitted students in undergraduate (first-cycle) and Master’s (second-cycle) courses/programmes
- Examinations for courses in the final year of a programme
- Undergraduate (first-cycle) and Master’s (second-cycle) programmes taught in English
