Disinfection of classrooms/lecture theatres

All rooms will be cleaned once a day, but the lecturer as well as the students are responsible for disinfecting the rooms before they leave.

The lecturer is responsible for initiating the disinfection process.

As a lecturer, you must therefore do the following when you have completed your teaching:

 

  1. Start by disinfecting your hands before touching the disinfection equipment. There will be both disinfection spray and disinfection equipment available in the room.    
  2. Disinfect the tables and chairs (not fabric surfaces) that you have used yourself. Remember to disinfect all contact surfaces (table edges, underneath the table, armrests, etc.) Use the disinfectant spray for all surfaces. Leave the surface moist but not wet.
  3. Inform the students that they must disinfect their tables and chairs following the same guidelines.
  4. Initiate the disinfection of all other contact surfaces (hand railings, door handles, sockets) either by you or the students.
  5. Leave the room tidy - do not leave trash, paper, etc. on the tables.

How to handle distancing requirements?

Before the start of the semester, all lecture theatres and classrooms were inspected and dimensioned so that they fit the number of students attending the physical classes in the room in question.

In each classroom and lecture theatre, you will find an overview of how the students should be seated depending on whether you are teaching a fixed group of students (permanent classes), a joint lecture, etc. The students are responsible for familiarising themselves with the seating overview. Find out more about the local guidelines at your department by contacting the head of department secretariat.

Remember that as a rule, there should be a two-metre distance between you and the front row of students.

If you find that there are too many students in the room or that the students are sitting too close together, it is your responsibility as a lecturer to interrupt the teaching.  If this happens, you must inform your head of department and director of studies.

Aarhus BSS task force on study-related matters

The faculty management team has decided to reactivate the task force for study-related matters as of 26 August 2020, as recent developments have resulted in new study-administrative issues that require coordination at school level.

The responsibility of the task force is to discuss, coordinate and communicate across the school on relevant study-related matters and questions arising from the coronavirus emergency response procedures.

The task force is not a decision-making body but will to a relevant and necessary extent present cases to the faculty management team, who must then make a decision.

If you have any enquiries regarding the above, please contact Fatos Kutllovci fku@au.dk

The composition of the task force for study-related matters:

  • Vice-dean for education Per Andersen
  • Directors of Studies Lars Esbjerg and Carsten Jensen
  • Head of the Studies Administration Anni Langberg
  • Head of Department Secretariat Anja Zimmerdahl
  • Head of Communications Aase Bak
  • Head of IT Services Andreas Heuwinkel
