Practical and laboratory education

14 January 2022

Scenario LOW is valid for study period 3, 2022

The prerequisites for study period 3 (P3) are that KTH applies KTH's scenario “LOW” for education, which means that the campus is open, but now with infection controlled-adapted hall furniture (i.e. the same restrictions on teaching as in the beginning of the academic period 1, HT21). The students who have not been able to participate in the on-campus examination during the exam period for P2 should be referred to the re-examination period in Easter.

KTH's action plan for education for study period 3, 2022

Description of the activity area

Practical and laboratory education is learning activities that either requires special physical equipment or that the student is in a special place to carry out the activity. Examples of such activities are laboratory work, study visits, on-site measurement, field-based surveys or work in workshop/maker space/studio.

General guidelines

For all practical and laboratory campus teaching, the following applies:

  • it is carried out in smaller groups of students
  • the activity is adapted to minimise the spread of infection
  • congestion is avoided
  • it is carried out using adequate protective equipment, washing and disinfection.

Comprehensive guidelines due to COVID-19

LOW

Practical and laboratory campus activities may be carried out.

MEDIUM

Code of conduct

Code of Conduct regarding minimising the spread of infection means that the student assures that:

  • he/she is symptom-free
  • use protective equipment
  • follow the instructions of the teacher or assistant
  • agrees that teachers or assistants reject students who do not follow the instructions.

Practical and laboratory campus activities may be carried out.

Code of Conduct regarding minimising the spread of infection must be adhered to.

HIGH

Practical and laboratory campus activities may only be carried out where there is a strong negative impact on the fulfilment of the course's learning objectives, if it is carried out in the digital environment. Other practical and laboratory activities are carried out digitally.

Digital labs are recommended in cases where it is possible for students to pick up the special equipment (e.g. lab kit or physical model), or have it sent home and then carry out the activity remotely.

Code of Conduct regarding minimising the spread of infection must be adhered to.
