The Queensland Government has announced the lift of increased restrictions as of 1am on 22 January.
You do not need to wear a mask in our campus libraries or in small classroom settings. Please continue to maintain physical distancing of 1.5 metres where possible. However, you will need to wear a mask if you are at the airport, on a plane, or when travelling or transporting someone to quarantine from overseas or a COVID-19 hotspot.
For your safety, and the safety of others, the Queensland Government encourages everyone to continue carrying a mask for when you are unable to maintain physical distancing.
For further details on restrictions, visit Queensland Health’s COVID-19 updates.
FOLLOWING GOVERNMENT ADVICE
While the Queensland Government responds to recent COVID-19 cases in South East Queensland, Griffith University continues to follow the advice of the Queensland Chief Health Officer's public health direction regarding COVID-19.
Under the directive, Universities must ensure:
- large lectures only seat one person per 4m2
- social distancing is observed wherever possible.
Noting the CHO's advice, all Griffith lectures remain online for now. Smaller education and teaching sessions, including group seminars, tutorials, practicals and lab-based lessons, and vocational training sessions are not subject to the one-person per 4m2 rule.
Social distancing should continue to be observed wherever possible.
Investment in teaching development
Your program directors, course convenors, lecturers and tutors have been upskilled to further support students in online learning.
Their training has focused on:
- learning collaboratively in Microsoft Teams and Blackboard Collaborate
- using Echo software
- teaching approaches to promote engagement with students in an online context
- managing assessment in the current context to include support for students in maximising access to assessment
- student wellbeing in learning.
The Australian Government has announced that university students receiving certain welfare payments will be eligible for the fortnightly $550 Coronavirus supplement. If you are currently receiving one of the following payments, you will automatically receive the temporary supplement:
