Program Description

Please find out the measures devised by the University of Bologna to begin next academic year in the best possible way.

Academic year 2020/21 – For the first semester, remote teaching activities will run in parallel with classroom teaching activities

During the first six months of a.y. 2020/21, the University of Bologna will offer blended teaching activities, held in classrooms but also accessible remotely. During the past months, the University has worked to ensure all classroom activities can resume for the greatest possible number of students while complying with safety regulations and protocols.

The University is focusing on two aspects: on the one hand, it is working on how to adapt classrooms using new technological infrastructure; on the other, it is implementing the transformations necessary to assist teachers in the process of constantly improving teaching methods.
