At UNIL, the academic year for the spring semester 2022 will take place in person, with the same rules as those that governed the autumn semester 2021. This is subject to new decisions by the federal and cantonal authorities, which may be taken shortly before the start of the academic year. Access to the classrooms will therefore be authorised to students with a COVID certificate or a weekly cantonal attestation, and those who are not in possession of a COVID certificate will be able to continue to follow the lessons online. In this newsletter, you will find a link to the Protection and Organisation Plan for teaching at Bachelor, Master and Doctorate levels for the autumn semester, which remains in force for the time being. We will then provide you with more information on the recording of courses, as well as the tools and services available to you.
Protection plan and organisation of teaching
For the time being, the Protection and Organisation Plan for teaching at Bachelor, Master and Doctorate levels during the autumn semester 2021-2022 remains in force for the academic year. In the event of new decisions by our authorities, it will be updated.
Recording of courses
The UNIL Rectorate decided to extend, for the spring 2022 semester, the measures intended to allow students who are not in possession of a COVID certificate to be able to follow the courses online. This extension also aims to avoid exposing the university community to the risk of abrupt and repeated changes in operation.
It is therefore expected that a broadcast and/or recording of the courses will be maintained at least for the beginning of the spring 2022 semester in order to allow synchronous and/or asynchronous distance learning.
As a reminder, recording and broadcasting can continue to be done either via one of the 49 rooms equipped with the REC-UNIL system, or in the other classrooms via the ZOOM application available to UNIL teachers. You will find all the information, guides and resources necessary for your preparation on the page " Lecture capture ".
We would also like to point out that live broadcasts using the REC-UNIL system require a recording, but that this recording is not published automatically, it is simply sent to the teacher's channel who can then either store it as a potential fallback solution or simply delete it.
The precise modalities concerning recording requests will be communicated at the beginning of next week after consultation with all faculties and schools.
Loan of microphones for recordings via Zoom
Microphones are available for loan at the Teaching Support Centre (CSE) for the duration of the Spring 2022 semester. If you wish to borrow a microphone, please come to the CSE, Anthropole building, room 2126, at the following times
Information and resource portal for digital teaching and learning tools
In order to improve the centralization of all resources related to digital tools available to our community for teaching and learning, we have developed the "Digital Teaching and Learning Environment" portal, available under this link: unil.ch/elearning/home.html
Pedagogical advisors are available for any questions related to your teaching in preparation for the academic year or in the longer term. Contact the CSE to make an appointment.
