STUDENTS and staff will be back at Letterkenny Institute of Technology for a full resumption of on-site activity.
The Institute has published a Plan for a Safe Return to LYIT for both the staff and student.
This plan is the implementation of the national A Safe Return to on-site Further and Higher Education and Research published in July and takes cognisance of the latest Government publication Reframing the Challenge, Continuing our Recovery and Reconnecting.
From September 20, the following will take place on site: Laboratory teaching and learning; Classroom based teaching and learning; Tutorials; Workshops; Smaller lectures; Research; Workspaces; Libraries; Canteens – operational in accordance with public health advice on workplace canteens; Sports facilities – operational in accordance with public health advice; Clubs and societies – operational in accordance with public health advice; Bars – operational in accordance with public health advice.
All classes/lectures/labs/practicals on the Letterkenny campus are to start on the half hour and be of 50 minutes’ duration to allow students to leave and enter without congregating on the corridors.
On the Killybegs campus all classes/lectures/labs/practicals are to start on the hour and be of 50 minutes’ duration for the same reason.
Where there are double classes a break should be built in to facilitate both staff and students.
In an email, LyIT President Paul Hannigan said: “The emphasis now is on personal responsibility, and I look forward to all of the college community contributing to the implementation of this plan to ensure the provision of a safe workplace for us all.
“I wish you all the best for the new academic year.”
