Due to the threat of COVID-19, universities across Malaysia are facing decisions about how to continue teaching and learning whilst keeping their faculty, staff, and students safe from a public health emergency that is fast moving and not well understood. Monash University Malaysia is no exception and have opted to cancel all face-to-face classes, including laboratory and other learning experiences, and have mandated that faculty move their units online to help prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19. Approaches as well as the remedial measures undertaken by the School of Pharmacy, Monash University Malaysia, with regards to teaching and learning (T&L) activities during and beyond the execution of the Movement Control Order (MCO) in Malaysia are discussed below.
