WEST VISAYAS STATE U TO HOLD LIMITED F2F CLASSES FOR MEDICAL COURSES
PREPARATIONS for the holding of face-to-face classes are underway at the West Visayas State University, which plans to allow limited in-person learning in August.
The school has retrofitted its classrooms to ensure the observance of minimum health standards. It has also drafted a manual on the policies and guidelines of the face-to-face classes that is awaiting approval of its Board of Regents.
“Proper markings of and in the buildings were made, seats of 1.5 meters apart were prepared, as well as screen guards for lecturers and professors,” the WVSU said.
It added that there will be separate entrance and exit gates.
“The University has also set up isolation rooms, just in case there will be cases. Restrooms will only allow two people at a time. Classrooms were retrofitted for ease of implementation of physical distancing,” the university said.
On Wednesday, school officials held a town hall meeting with the parents and students of its College of Nursing and College of Medicine to discuss the planned holding of physical classes.
The university said that while its implementation of flexible learning has been successful, there are lessons that are best delivered face-to-face.
