Daystar to retain Blended Learning for May Semester
By Fatiha Shabir
Daystar University will continue administering blended learning where both physical and online classes will be ongoing during the May 2021 semester.
According to a memo sent to the school on Thursday by the VC Prof. Ayiro, those to resume for physical learning include nursing students, continuing diploma students, new and continuing Certificate students, and those admitted during the October 2020 and January 2021 semester.
“School of Science students taking Applied Computer Science, Biomedical Science, Environmental Health and MIS will study online,” said VC Ayiro.
New students of Diploma and Undergraduate programs will have physical learning and are to report for orientation at the Athi River campus on May 17, at 8:30am.
However, new postgraduate students will learn virtually and undergo virtual orientation on May 17 before classes officially begin on May 24.
“All new students are encouraged to read their admission letters carefully and plan early payment of both orientation and semester fees,” said Prof Ayiro.
Continuing Post-graduate students will resume blended learning as they will be allowed to attend seminars and have contact with supervisors during their thesis defences.
Ongoing students are set to begin classes on May 10 while the new Diploma and Undergraduate students will start their classes on May 24.
Since the new students will miss two weeks of the semester, their timetable will be adjusted so that they attend classes twice a week to cover the necessary classroom hours.
The Daystar community has been urged to follow all Covid-19 protocols in both campuses to ensure that everyone’s health is safeguarded.
