The University of Cape Town (UCT) has elected to pursue teaching and learning in 2021 in terms of a “physically distanced, low-density campus” approach. This is to mitigate the risk of the spread of COVID-19 during this second wave, and in preparation for a possible third wave.
As such, it was decided by Senate that all undergraduate courses will be offered via a combination of online lectures and face-to-face activities in small groups. To allay any anxiety, we wish to assure you that 2020 taught us, as a university, valuable lessons about how best to conduct online teaching in ways that keep you actively and productively engaged throughout.
