Dealing with Student

Teaching and Learning Arrangements for Term 2 of 2020-21
The Chinese University of Hong Kong

The University spares no effort to ensure that teaching and learning continues to forge ahead, with timely pedagogical interventions.  Under the “new normal”, a curated “hybrid” mode i.e. a combination of face-to-face and synchronous online academic activities will be adopted. However, assuming that the pandemic continues on a relatively moderate course, more on-campus teaching and learning activities should be possible in this term.  This section provides a complete documentation of relevant communications of the teaching and learning arrangements to different stakeholders via different channels.
