In the light of the government’s decision to ease restrictions on events and the fact that the spread of COVID-19 having been stabilized to a point in Japan, HU has decided to lower its alert level to Level 1 (Be careful) (Minimum restrictions) from October 1, 2020.
Amid the spread of the novel coronavirus infections nationwide, HU has launched an index for restrictions on campus activities. The 6-level index serves to HU members (students, faculty and administrative members) as rough guidelines so that they allow the members to act in an appropriate and flexible manner according to the situation. We kindly ask all HU members to take appropriate actions based on these guidelines. Also, please stay away from the crowds, wash your hands often, wear facemasks, and follow cough etiquette.
The following restriction index applies to all HU campuses, except medical activities at HU’s Hospital. As the situation is rapidly changing daily, please make sure to check the latest updates on HU’s website everyday.
[Class implementation in response to Level 1 ]
- After sufficient infection prevention measures, depending on the characteristics of each subject and the content of each lesson, we will hold classes that take advantage of the features of face-to-face and online classes. When face-to-face lessons and online lessons are used together, for example, there are the following forms.
・Several students participate online (in real time) in face-to-face lessons held on campus
・Online distribution of face-to-face lesson video and audio to other classrooms in real time
・Record video and audio of face-to-face lessons and distribute on demand
・Either face-to-face lessons or online lessons will be held depending on the content of each lesson.
・Students are divided into two groups and face-to-face lessons are held every other week.
- As of September 28, we plan to introduce face-to-face activities for a total of 1,995 subjects (For the course list, click here), such as undergraduate specialized subjects for first-year undergraduate students, some graduate school classes, subjects with 20 or less students judged to be feasible by the dean, subjects that cannot be effective in education unless they are face-to-face in experiments and practical training that involve practical skills. In addition, we will also conduct face-to-face subjects that include elements of research guidance such as seminars.
- We will secure classrooms so that you can take classes online on campus.
