SUBMISSION OF PROJECT WORK:
The dynamics that come with the shutdown and the need to complete the 2019/2020 second semester through online teaching and learning also have implications for final year students.
Hitherto, as part of the partial fulfilment of the requirements for graduation under the regular face-to-face system, for example, all undergraduate students are expected to submit and Project work under the supervision of a Lecturer.
The original deadline for the submission of the completed Project work/Theses/Dissertations was 30th April. However, as of the time of the shutdown, many students and supervisors were still working on such projects.
Now with all academic activities going online, it means undergraduate Project work and all its consequential activities should also be migrated online.
Mid-Semester Examination and Continuous Assessment:
11th -15th May 2020 has been set aside for mid-semester examination.
Examinations timetable similar to the regular timetable (non-COVID-19 oriented) will be released in due course. ULMEC will constitute the online Time Table Committee with the power to co-opt any other member.
In addition, all Lecturers are mandated to conduct at least one assignment/quiz on Moodle before the semester ends. The assignment/quiz so conducted should mirror the mode in which the end-of-semester question would be set. For example, if the end-of-semester examination will be in the form of multiple-choice questions or essay-type questions, the mid-semester examination should be cast in such mode.
Lecturers and students are encouraged to engage in dialogue and negotiations to resolve project work issues and as well give maximum support to the above directives to help bring the second semester to a logical conclusion.
