  4. practical classes,

Physical education classes will be carried out in the hybrid form: 10 hours (5 classes) of physical education will be conducted in the premises of the University of Silesia, 10 hours (2 or 3 meetings) will be conducted outdoors and the remaining 10 hours in the remote form.
