Bangalore: As educational institutions get back to on-campus teaching, teaching in batches is becoming the new norm. Bangalore University (BU) also plans to reopen on November 17 and it might conduct classes in batches.
BU Vice-Chancellor, KR Venugopal told Bangalore Mirror that since commerce and management students are more in number, the challenge remains in conducting classes for them.
The strength of the students in each class varies from 80 to 100 and above.
“Maintaining physical distance in science and arts streams may not be a problem due to low strength. However, we need to be careful with commerce and management classes,” he said.
“The colleges should either hold multiple batches for a section or have classes on alternative days. It is up to the colleges to make a choice, based on their infrastructure facilities,” Venugopal was further quoted by Bangalore Mirror.
Moreover, the university is also planning to conduct practicals initially followed by online classes for the science stream.
However, there was no mention of cutting down the syllabus as he said that leaving even a single chapter would be detrimental to a students’ future.
