The University of Granada (UGR) is making progress in preparations for the upcoming academic year, which everything seems to indicate, will also have to adapt to the epidemiological situation. From the academic institution he defended that we “will begin with the highest degree of attendance permitted by the health conditions and indications of the authorities at that time.” While the time has a stage that will be shown for the first time on September 13th Academic year 2021/2022, UGR continues to purchase devices that allow continuing education under the hybrid model.
Thus, the Foundation began the process of acquiring fifteen Aver CAM 520 Pro for videoconferencing in the School of Education Sciences classrooms. Another indication that some normality will be attempted in connection with this year is the acquisition and assembly of tents that host, every year, reception days in Fuentiniva, A verb that occurred between September and October and this year was hypothetical.
In the report justifying the need for a contract to purchase cameras for education science, it was determined that “the current epidemiological situation due to Covid-19 has created the need to install systems in the classroom that allow the transfer of classes to a distance to enable students who are unable to attend in person due to different circumstances and to follow them and participate in them” The same document also indicates that the college already has “some cameras” for the model that will be acquired and that these “allow for the satisfaction of the college’s need for the means to transfer classes remotely from the classroom.”
It allowed the purchase of equipment for the transmission of broadcast categories this year under the hybrid model built before last summer, given the realization that the health crisis caused by Covid-19 has not been overcome. Thus, the blended classes were created with the scores awarded by the UGR and around two million euros were invested in adapting the centers to the new normal. Classes began on September 21 and on October 14, the council decided to switch to the Internet method of theoretical teaching, a measure that was first imposed in Granada and later extended to all Andalusian universities. This hypothetical teaching mode was maintained until April 12, when the hybrid method was resumed. Novelty was the protocol established by UGR to allow students who were unable to attend class to continue studying remotely. About 1,100 undergraduate students are granted the exemption that allows them to follow the course from home.
And while the design of the next course takes shape, there are still limbs hanging from the previous one. Irene Ortiz, vice dean for cultural activities, sports and students of science, says scholarships for the 2016-2020 category are guarded by jealousy, “the ones that were not handed out last year.” It was handed over for two weeks to those students who were able to go to college to pick them up, and the vice dean specifies, who adds that the handover was done with care.
“It was done in degrees and time periods, in alphabetical order of family surnames so that no more than ten people met every half hour. Actually, it never happened, they came in a very organized way.” Ortiz plans to organize another rendition now, as travel between counties and communities is allowed. As for the graduation scholarships for the 2017-2021 category, “They are now administered”, the vice dean will be determined. She also must adapt businesses like scholarships and graduate colleges.
