covid has separated families for many months now and probably still for many months to come. When family issues arise it is heartbreaking not to be able to attend them. To risk losing a job to be able to attend an urgent family matter overseas is just cruel and un fair. Especially when students in that university are given the option to fully study online from abroad, there should be nothing preventing a lecturer from delivering her classes online for a definite time.
