How will I study?
Mode of delivery: Blended learning based on a hybrid Model.
This module will be delivered through blended learning based on a hybrid model. A hybrid model is ‘an educational approach where some individuals participate in-person and some participate online synchronously (at the same time).’ The tutor(s) deliver sessions and teach remote and in-person learners synchronously using appropriate technology, meaning that the students are taught together in ‘real time’. This means some of your teaching sessions will be delivered in-person and some are online synchronous delivery. If you are unable to attend in-person, with your Module Leader’s permission, you can attend the in-person teaching session, online synchronously.
