ATTENTION! Problems with USOS

Dear Students, Dear Colleagues,

Due to the inconsistencies in USOS class schedules reported today (October 4) by both students and lecturers, I would like to inform you about the problems we have no control over. It seems that your USOSweb incorrectly presents the users of the plan, while from the administrative USOS side, nothing has changed, and the data is correct. We will try to clarify the situation if it persists after the data migration tonight.

Nevertheless, I would like to remind you that classes are held following the information on the scheduled dates of classes (those in USOS seem to work correctly, errors are only in the weekly plans of students and lecturers). Any cancellations and changes to plans are announced via the website archeologia.uw.edu.pl and/or via university e-mail.

I sincerely apologize for this situation.

Sincerely,

Elżbieta Jaskulska

Organization of the winter semester in academic year 2021/2022

Dear Students, Dear Colleagues,

On October 1, Order No. 4 of the Head of the Teaching Unit of the Faculty of Archaeology of September 30, 2021, on the organization of education in the field of archaeology in the winter semester of the 2021/2022 academic year, was published (link to the regulation – in Polish). Let me briefly present the basic information:

    • full-time classes in archaeology in Polish (both 1st and 2nd degree) are conducted in a stationary mode at the University’s premises indicated in the schedule, except for the announced list of classes that will be held fully or partially remotely;
    • classes in archaeology in Polish conducted in extramural mode are conducted in a mixed-mode, the exact system of teaching classes will be determined after consultation with the students during the first conference session (October 9-10), which will be held in a full-time mode);
    • courses in Archeology (Studies in English) for the year 2-3 of undergraduate studies are conducted in a stationary mode at the University premises indicated in the timetable, except for the announced list of classes, which will be held entirely or partially remotely;
    • courses in Archeology (Studies in English) for 1st year of bachelor’s studies and 1st year of master’s studies in October-November are conducted in a mixed-mode, i.e. online and at the University’s premises indicated in the schedule of activities.

At the same time, I would like to remind you that, by the decision of the rector’s authorities, students are required to cover their mouth and nose during classes in the classrooms, but they are not obliged to keep their distance. The lecturer is released from the obligation to cover his mouth and nose during classes, and in exceptional circumstances, he may also allow students to remove their masks. It is obligatory to register the names of people present in the room also during classes where attendance is not required – please leave the attendance lists in the box at the reception desk. In the corridors and other shared spaces of the Faculty of Archaeology building, apart from the lecture halls, it is obligatory to cover the mouth and nose and keep a distance of 1.5 meters in relation to all people staying in the building.

Yours faithfully,

Elżbieta Jaskulska
