Dear colleagues, dear students,

Unfortunately, the situation with the coronavirus pandemic is not improving, but the beginning of the summer semester is fast approaching. Therefore, I am forced to issue the following measures for the organization and implementation of the summer semester of the academic year 2020/21.

 

Educational process

Teaching in full­‑time, part­‑time (distance) form, but also in supplementary pedagogical study (DPŠ) and extension study programs takes place according to the published schedule. It takes place remotely, online, using educational software MS Teams and Moodle. If the situation allows for full­‑time education, I will inform you immediately, but I do not anticipate such a change in this semester.

Teaching period in the summer semester 2020/21 lasts from February 15, 2021 to May 14, 2021 in accordance with the valid schedule.

Exceptions are students of the final years: teaching period for students of the 3rd year Bc. (Bachelor) ends on April 23, 2021, teaching period for students of the 2nd Mgr. (Master) ends on April 16, 2021.

During the Easter holidays from March 31 until April 6, 2021, there will be no online classes.

Based on the teacher’s request, the schedule can be changed in the first two weeks of the semester (until February 26, 2021), if this does not affect the schedule of other colleagues or other students’ schedule. After this date, the schedule is valid and invariable.

In the period from February 15, 2021 to February 19, 2021, students can use the prescribed form to ask their study adviser to add or remove a course.

Office hours

Office hours of pedagogical staff shall be collected by the relevant secretary of the department and shall be published on the website of the faculty by February 20, 2021. Study advisers will also set separate office hours for this activity.

 

Practice

The practice can be carried out at training schools based on a contract, either in person (in the case of open schools and school facilities) or online. Practice in the third year can also be realized as sharing and analyzing of lesson videos and organizing consultations, discussions with teachers or principals.

Practice can also be realized through tutoring in the place of residence, participating in online education, either by preparing documents for online education or by listening to it or by its implementation – output.

The implementation of the practice is provided by the persons responsible for the practice didactics at the departments.

 

Final Theses Submission

Deadlines for submission of final theses:

  • Bachelor theses April 23, 2021,
  • Diploma theses April 16, 2021,
  • Dissertation thesis project April 30, 2021,
  • Dissertation theses April 30, 2021,
  • Supplementary pedagogical studies May 7, 2021.

For all types of theses, it is also possible to use an alternative date for submission of a thesis: June 30, 2021 with a defense in August (if this date is used for the first submission, it will be considered the first (regular) date).

The theses shall be submitted online. You shall print the thesis assignment from MAIS in a pdf document and insert it into your thesis without a signature. You shall upload the thesis in time into the Central Register of Final Theses (CRZP), send them for export and generate the documents. Supervisors and opponents shall assess the theses based on the electronic version in the EZP (final theses database) and they shall also submit the assessments (uploading to the EZP) through this system.

The assessments must be published no later than one week before the defense.

The theses of the supplementary pedagogical studies (DPŠ) shall be sent by the students to their consultants, through the secretariats the theses shall be distributed to the respective opponents. The assessments shall also be sent through the secretariats of the relevant departments. Instructions and administration shall be provided by the vice­‑dean Ms. Masaryková.

Students who will need to modify their topics shall contact their supervisors and they shall edit the topic in the MAIS system, the structure and content of the thesis together so that it can be submitted.

 

State exams

The state exams will probably be implemented in a distance form according to the original state examinations schedule.

Dissertation exams and dissertation defenses will be also implemented in this form.

 

Working mode of faculty staff and the possibility of presence in the faculty buildings

If we follow the COVID automat, I will notify you of the working mode on a weekly basis according to the regional indicator for the district of Trnava. Pursuant to the Labor Code, I must inform you of the change in the conditions of work at least two days in advance.

The building of the Faculty of Education of the University of Trnava on Priemyselná Street is open on weekdays from 7:30 to 15:30. Screening testing takes place in the building on weekends and therefore the building cannot be used.

Entry into the building is possible only with the appropriate permit, a test and in compliance with all anti­‑epidemiological measures.

In case you need to use the building in another mode, inform me at least two days in advance, I will ensure its opening.

The Adalbertinum building is not currently in operation.

 

Dear colleagues, dear students,

Thank you once again for your work, initiative, and responsibility, with which you try to fulfill all your duties. Currently, I would like to thank especially all those who participated in the preparation and implementation of the open day of our faculty and also those who participate in the ongoing state exams.

Hopefully, we will be able to overcome this challenging period as soon as possible, and we will soon be able to meet again in person.

 

I wish you good health, lots of creative energy and all the best. 
Viera Peterková.
