Uni Canberra takes courses on-line and commits to staff crisis leave

Teaching is on campus all this week – but that’s it

“Faculty staff have been working tirelessly to ensure that personal distancing measures are being implemented,” acting VC Belinda Robinson says.  Classes are already being taught on-line and there will be a full rollout, where possible at the end of mid-semester break, on April 14.

In a much-anticipated decision on COVID-19 leave Ms Robinson announced, “any staff directly affected by COVID-19 will have access to up to ten days (pro rata) paid miscellaneous leave.”
