Since classes were cancelled (beginning March 11) the administration both of the college and the university have been going berserk about making classes ‘zdalne’ (remote). Within the first week my department asked instructors what we’re doing and I answered (basically posting materials online and corresponding with students by email – the world does not need me making videos).
Then a flood of emails started arriving about various possibilities for posting materials and making video lecturers available and even managing to do real time lectures (like video conferencing I suppose).
The peak was yesterday when I had to give the same information I’d already given to my department to the faculty (wydział, more like a college at a US university) in three different formats…. and yet another format arrived this morning.
Some I’m spending less time in correspondence and more time in repeatedly giving nervous bureaucrats the same information in very slightly different formats….
