Otago Polytechnic Prepares Return At Level 2
Otago Polytechnic will continue to deliver its programmes online until Monday 13 September.
"To give our learners certainty about their learning in the coming week, we have made the decision that programmes will continue with online/remote learning until Monday 13 September," says Dr Megan Gibbons, Chief Executive, Otago Polytechnic.
"This decision will give us more time to implement the changes required for transitioning to Covid-19 Alert Level 2.
"Our Dunedin campus will be open to staff on Wednesday to prepare for the return of our students, but we are awaiting details from several Government agencies in order to confirm our Alert Level 2 guidelines," Dr Gibbons says.
"All staff and learners will be required to complete a Health and Safety induction module relating to Level 2, which will include guidelines from the Ministry of Health and the Tertiary Education Commission," Dr Gibbons says.
"Learners and our staff will be required to follow the guidelines when they are back on campus. We look forward to welcoming them soon."
