The MUT refers to Circular Ref: DCLE09/2020 “Developing online teaching and learning further” issued by the Ministry for Education and Employment following a number of meetings with the Working Group set up following the closure of schools. The MUT appeals to educators to read the content of the circular and ignore comments made in the social media, including those by the Minister.
The circular explicitly states that the scheme of work and record of work to be sent should be in the format educators have always used, just adapted to the present circumstances and indicating the online medium used. Two schemes of work and two records of work need to be done, for May and June respectively. Additional requirements made by the Minister on how lessons should be structured should be ignored as they do not reflect what was agreed upon by the working group. Educators are professionals and do not need lessons from social media on how to do their work.
The MUT shall be considering its position in the respective working group if this work is being bypassed.
