Q&A for teachers and researchers - coronavirus

Updated 7 May 2020

I had teaching obligations for the spring semester, what should I do?

Alternative teaching and examination will be planned for the rest of the spring semester. It includes online courses, video lectures, etc. If your planned teaching is being affected, your course coordinator or the Head of Educational Programme (HEP) will contact you.

To assist with coordination, SDC has appointed liaison officers for all MSc programmes. The liaison officers will support the HEPs and teachers and assist with coordination between teachers and the students.

Questions related to technical support, access to the online services, etc. can be addressed to the liaison officer.

How will SDC handle exams during the epidemic?

All exams during the spring semester will be processed through WISEflow. WISEflow is supported by the Danish SDC Office. SDC assessors and external examiners will be informed and receive short guidelines how to use WISEflow when they are assigned to an exam. Students will receive information about WISEflow when they are signed up for exam. All questions related to WISEflow can be directed to the Danish SDC Office: contact@sdc.university.

A short easy to follow guide for assessors/examiners can be found on moodle here.


How will the (remainder of the) spring semester be planned?

With the indefinite closure of UCAS campuses and current travel restrictions, it is unlikely that SDC students will face ‘normal’ teaching conditions in the 2020 spring semester. The teaching and examinations of the remaining spring semester must therefore be planned in conjunction with the current conditions i.e. with use of video-lessons, online teaching, self-study etc.

In what way are re-exams affected?

Re-exam following the autumn semester 2019 has been temporarily suspended. It will however be necessary to begin planning these re-exams now given the indefinite closure. The Danish SDC Office will plan needed re-exams in cooperation with the HEP’s.

What if students’ theses are delayed due to the COVID-19?

The deadline for handing in theses is June 1 according to the SDC thesis regulations. All students who have completed their compulsory courses are automatically signed up for the thesis. It is obvious that some students will be delayed due to COVID-19. These students can be granted exemption with a hand in date postponed 3 or 6 months. SDC will publish a template on Moodle for the students to use when applying for exemption. Exemptions will be granted on an individual basis and therefore the main supervisor must recommend/support the application from the student before the Director and the Dean of Sino-Danish College will grant exemption.

The template can be found here.

How do I access Moodle?

Access to Moodle and first line support is provided by the Danish SDC office. Teachers, who has not registered on Moodle, can do so by following the guidelines on our website. Teachers with an existing Moodle account can be enrolled in a course by sending an e-mail to the Danish SDC Office: contact@sdc.university.

When can we expect the campus to open?

Nobody knows. The Chinese national authorities make this decision. Even if UCAS campuses open later this spring, all teaching activities are cancelled in the SDC building this spring.

I am teaching a course in Beijing in the autumn semester. Should I expect to go?

Nobody knows. The Chinese national authorities decides when to open campus. However, we hope the coming cohort of students will be able to go to Beijing in late August for the introduction week and subsequent semester start. There is a risk that students will have to start out with online teaching in the autumn semester. Also, we advise you to follow the travel guidelines from the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

What about my expenses – will the Danish SDC office cover my expenses for already purchased airline tickets?

Cancel or rebook your ticket if possible. The Danish SDC office will reimburse your university for the total economic loss (including fees) in accordance with the compensation guidelines.

Where do I find the latest updated information?
