TEACHING ACTIVITIES

  • Lectures, educational workshops, and other face-to-face teaching activities for three-year, master's, and single-cycle courses are always conducted in presence, with faculty and students in the classroom;
  • Classrooms must be used at 100 percent of their potential weekly capacity: everyone must do his or her part, with the utmost willingness and spirit of cooperation with the departments in charge, to achieve this result;
  • For "mandatory attendance" courses only, the student must book the classroom seat through the Student Booking App (SBK) to attend class. The student must book the seat for each lecture he/she intends to attend, even if conducted in the same classroom. Upon arrival at the Learning Pavilion, the reservation must be presented to the Concierge staff for validation as a function of attendance verification, subject to any subsequent and further control by the course instructor.
