Online teaching at the faculty of Arts

Because of the newly announced government restrictions to prevent the spread of the corona virus, all teachers and lecturers at the Faculty of Arts as well as the rest of Aarhus University are recommended to conduct digitally facilitated remote education.

All teaching at the Aarhus University, and thus also the Faculty of Arts, will be affected by the ongoing shut-down. For most teachers, this will require new initiatives. At Arts, it is recommended that teaching is conducted partly as self-study, where students themselves will have to read the course work. In addition there should be a number of study activities in, for example, Blackboard as well as synchronous teaching activities such as online teaching via a video conferencing system.

We have gathered all the necessary information on this site, so that you may continue your teaching online. Read more about our didactic recommendations from the online ressource AU Educate and information on our support offers for Arts teachers during the shutdown.
