Supervisions: Locations of Rooms


You need to be self-sufficient. You must bring...

You can use an electronic device for the paperwork. If you do then make sure that it has enough charge to last the supervision.

Michaelmas Term 2020: Locations

Throughout Michaelmas Term 2020, except when notified otherwise, I shall teach in A45, Selwyn on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. I shall teach in M4a, Jesus College on Thursdays, at least for the first few Thursdays.

A45, Selwyn

Selwyn students can go straight to the room. At precisely three minutes before the start time of the supervision, and no earlier, enter A staircase, wearing a mask as usual. Sanitize your hands using the dispenser ahead. Go up all of the stairs, giving way to people coming downstairs and staying socially distanced (as the signs remind you) until you are on the fourth floor. Do not touch the banisters on the way up. Go through the door on your right, which is A45; it will be open. I'll show you where you can sit. Mind the low beams.

Non-Selwyn students: I'll have to meet you outside the College to let you in, because the front door is locked. Go to the main entrance, and I'll meet you there at three minutes before the start time of the supervision. Have your masks ready. If it's your first supervision with me I'll be holding a book on quantum theory so that you can easily identify me.

Selwyn students may be aware that the College protocol involves waiting for a message via MS Teams before entering a building for a supervision. I'm not sending those messages; you should consider yourself summoned at three minutes before the start time.

Following the latest advice from the College, face coverings should be worn throughout supervisions in Selwyn, even though we'll be 2m apart.

M4a, Jesus College

The room is in Second Court, Jesus College. Jesus students can go straight there, entering the staircase (masked as usual) no more than one minute before the start time of the supervision, and going into M4a, which is on the first floor. The door will be open. Non-Jesus students: for your first supervision in this room I'll meet you half way along the "Chimney", the passageway from Jesus Lane to the main entrance of Jesus College, at five minutes before the start time of the supervision.

You'll need to bring something to lean on if you want to make notes during the supervision, because the tables aren't in the right place for where the chairs will need to be.

Covid-Secure Supervisions

Before each supervision I'll sanitize table surfaces and parts of chairs (though not chair legs or fabric---try not to touch touch those). Windows will be open. Inside the college building, you may take your mask off only when seated in the supervision room, and then only provided all students are happy with that---if anyone prefers masks to be worn, we shall all wear masks throughout (unless exempt). You must leave the seating 2m apart, unless you belong to the same household as the other students in the supervision.

Update: for all supervisions in Selwyn, masks will be worn throughout.

It's important for safety that students only enter the building when the room will be ready for them. Make sure that you follow the instructions for the appropriate room above, and do not enter the building until the correct time.
