In the last few days, the whole world has experienced new challenges. The University of Primorska also had to drastically adapt its operations. We had to implement swift measures and adapt our running from one hour to the next. In doing that, our special thought was with you. We invested all our energy and efforts in introducing additional safety measures and to simultaneously guarantee continuation of the study process.
The response of the whole university community was unbelievably positive. Professors immediately started to adapt their teaching and incorporated modern communication channels, and students accepted that with open arms. Your wish to establish audio and video contact with teachers, constant conversations during and after lessons, your continuous individual work and your motivation to continue studying in all conditions make me proud.
You are proving that knowledge is our joint value, which connects us. This is why we are succeeding. Adaptability, sacrifices and resourcefulness ensure that the university is operating continuously as far as possible. We cannot transfer all of the knowledge online, and adaptations will definitely also be needed in other areas. But we will discuss those later. Today I would especially like to thank you for your response and your engagement. Together we are proving how strong our community is. The university, thanks to you, remains a functioning foundation of science and learning.
Thank you very much and stay healthy!
Prof. Klavdija Kutnar, PhD.
