   Contingency plan

Given the uncertain and unpredictable evolution of the health alert caused by COVID-19, the University of Vigo establishes an extraordinary planning that will be activated when the administrations and the institution itself determine it, considering safety, health and responsibility criteria both in distance and blended learning. These already planned measures guarantee, at the required time, the development of teaching in a more agile and effective way, as it is known in advance (or well in advance) by the students and teachers through the standardized tool.


Under the blended mode, one part of the student body will remain in the classroom while the other part will follow the class preferably in a synchronous mode, or asynchronous if the tool used so advises. Methodologies, personalized attention and evaluation will remain the same as those of the classroom-based mode. However, groups and rotations will be adapted to comply with health regulations.

No adaptation of the course contents is required, as all of them can be addressed in a non classroom-based context. The teaching methodologies, already based on the syncronous use of collaborative digital spaces, do not require modifications either. Online classes will be carried out by videoconference on the remote campus at the times scheduled for classroom-based classes whenever possible.

Tutoring sessions will preferably be ensured by videoconference, although it is also possible to contact the teacher by e-mail or by phone. Several references from the recommended literature are available in digital format. Students interested in consulting them are invited to contact the teacher.


The evaluation system foreseen for the different calls will also remain the same as in a non-classroom-based environment. No modification or adaptation is required.
