After the end of the Covid-19 alarm state, MCH returns to face-to-face activity. Since June 23rd, teamwork and reviews with teachers have been resumed. From mid July on, it is planned to continue with the MCH classes in a space at ETSAM, where the two workshops lead by Hrvoje Njiriç and Alison Brooks will take place. Both workshops, previously scheduled for March and April, were intentionally postponed to summer, in the hope that they could be held in person. That's important because all MCH workshops have a very practical nature.
The hybrid model implemented since last week consists of alternating face-to-face working groups formed by four students plus two teachers, with online lectures. In view of the health emergency caused by Covid-19, some students decided to return to their countries of origin in March. For them, all the contents and face-to-face tutorials are also broadcasted simultaneously through Zoom. This method of live broadcast also allow foreign teachers to continue with their teaching online.
The return to the face-to-face activity allows to improve social interaction among MCH participants and gives them access to all working materials, such as 3D printers, plotter, printers, scanner. A large space is provided, where they can work comfortably while the required interpersonal distance is guaranteed.
We must not forget that the epidemic situation is still ongoing, that is why, from MCH, we are taking special care on complying with all the measures decreed by the health authorities, at least till the end of the health crisis situation is declared.
Once again we would like to thank all those who are contributing to the success of MCH, specially considering this very difficult and exceptional situation that we are experiencing all over the world.
Life goes on and MCH2021 is moving forward. The MCH Academic Committee is already planning its calendar for the 13th edition, and both, workshops and specialties, are being scheduled in a face-to-face way, as usual.
