Summary of the program council and link meetings

This wednesday the 13:th of May, the study board attended the program council for the Computer Science program and link meetings for years 1-3.

During the link meetings, period four's courses were discussed and we conveyed the opinions of the students. The main talking point was the effects of covid-19 on the courses. It was also made clear that several courses require more assistants in order to grade assignments quicker, a situation which EECS will try to improve for future course offerings.

The program council was dominated by information regarding specific prerequisites, which have now been finalized for the autumn. We hope to provide more information regarding this matter shortly. We were also informed that KTH is currently working towards further incorporating equality, diversity, and sustainability into their educational offerings. Finally it was also mentioned that the computer science program is discussing Canvas guidelines.

Revisions-SM is around the corner. The meeting will be held using the digitally using the software Zoom. A link to the Zoom meeting will be published in this post and in the facebook post of this meeting at 17:00 at the 26:th of march.

Sincerely, the D-directorate.

The board meeting tomorrow

Hello, all Chapter members, the board has decided how the board meeting will be held tomorrow. The conclusion was that the possibility to attend in person will be preserved but we recommend digital attendance. The board will be physically represented tomorrow but the meeting will primarily be hosted digitally, which is the option that we encourage. To attend tomorrow’s meeting, you send an email to [email protected], then you'll get a document consisting of an invitation link as well as the rules. The other option is that you attend physically. Sincerely the D-rectorate.

Regarding the novel corona virus (covid-19)

Announcement from the D-directorate.

Because of the circumstances in the world due to the covid-19 (The coronavirus) outbreak, D-directorate has decided the following:

  • All larger and longer events, pubs and seatings within the scope of the chapters operations, are cancelled until further notice.
  • We discourage all committees and projects from having physical activities in META, on KTH campus or at other locations. We encourage digital activities however.
  • If physical events are performed the Swedish Public Health Agency’s recommendations for public gatherings must be followed.
  • No new expenses or purchases without consulting with the board beforehand.
  • We encourage everyone that has cold symptoms (respiratory symptoms, cough, fever or similar) to stay at home.

Why have we made this decision?

Updates about the covid-19 outbreak are published continuously and we don’t know what the next step is. We have chosen to act on the information we have received from KTH, THS and the Public Health Agency of Sweden. According to the Public Health Agency, the risk of spreading the virus increases with a large number of participants and long-lasting events, such as pubs and seatings. We don’t know how the situation will develop. Therefore, we want to be careful about new expenses since events might get cancelled.

The social pressure. When we arrange an event, the fear of missing out affects many members. Someone feels a little bit ill but doesn’t want to miss the seating and decides to attend anyway. That kind of reasoning is something that people make and we don’t want to encourage behaviour of this sort.

The decision has been incredibly hard to make and there are plenty of factors that have been considered before making this decision.

We will be reevaluating our decisions on a continuous basis and change the recommendations based on the current state.

If you have any questions don’t be afraid to contact the D-directorate at [email protected].

Information from Program Responsible because of COVID-19.

In case you missed the anouncment from our Program Responsible you can read it below.

"Dear CDATE students.

In line with KTH's guidelines concerning covid-19 we're working on temporarily moving courses that start now, or are continuing in period 4, online to some extent, with digital materials and activities. Right now it's recommended for 'courses over 100 participants to offer distance education or other forms of teaching that avoid gatherings of large groups (and therefore not to cancel the usual education). In smaller courses this will happen whenever it is practically possible.'

Soon you will get concrete information from course responsible staff.

For the latest informaion from KTH about the spreading of covid-19, please visit kth.se/corona.

Pawel Herman, Program Responsible for CDATE"
