UoH forms task force for resumption of academic activities

Hyderabad, Jul 2 (UNI) University of Hyderabad (UoH) has constituted a task force to chalk out a clear road map for resumption of teaching-learning activities that were suspended on March 15 because of the spread of the coronavirus throughout the country, including in Hyderabad.
Through the formation of this task force, the University would like to reassure its current students and those to be newly admitted, as well as their parents that the University will spare no efforts to sustain the high-quality education that the University is reputed to offer, even while addressing on-campus health and safety concerns and issues related to online learning during the pandemic crisis, the University said in a release here on Thursday.
The 12-member task force to be chaired by Prof Vinod Pavarala, former Dean of the Sarojini Naidu School of Arts and Communication, has been mandated to consult various stakeholders of the University and work out an action plan for kickstarting academic activities that had come to a halt more than three months ago.
The task force will examine and recommend a range of teaching methods incorporating face-to-face, online, and blended modes of delivery of course content.
The group will recommend appropriate measures to upgrade the institution’s ICT infrastructure to be able to address the challenges of online education.
The task force will also examine the scheduling and mode of the University’s annual entrance examination that is normally held across the country for admission to its various post-graduate and research programmes.
