All levels of education should incorporate a blend of teaching on campus and digital forms. Practical elements or elements with a clear need for cooperation and interaction between teachers and students, or between the students, should be carried out on campus in order to maintain a sufficiently high quality of education based on the programme objectives.

The following are requirements for the delivery of teaching:

  • Teaching must be carried out with both synchronous and asynchronous learning activities, not just as self-study. Read more about .
  • Sufficient emphasis should be placed on collecting student feedback throughout the course. A Course Evaluation Board should be appointed.
  • Canvas should be used as a learning platform for information, communication, and administration regarding the course's activities.

Educational materials and online activities for designing digital education can be found on the Intranet pages of Education Support .

The Examiner is responsible for planning which activities in the course will be carried out on campus in consultation with Course Instructors and Programme Director and should make any necessary changes regarding the schedule and location. The Programme Director is responsible for coordinating campus-based course components with consideration to the programme as a whole and with regard to the full year perspective. The Examiner is responsible for informing the students of the course about the course disposition via Canvas or course memo.

Course components can be changes in line with the transition to increased digital education. Decisions on such changes are made by the Director of First and Second Cycle Education after presentation by the Examiner. Schools shall continue to log such changes in relation to the official course syllabus. The changes that become permanent should be included in the syllabus.
