How the modules will be delivered
Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, there is still uncertainty regarding how much campus-based classroom teaching will be permitted for our modules and programmes from September 2020. Our modules have previously been delivered as a blended approach to learning and teaching, using a variety of face-to-face formats supported by a wide range of online activities. During the lockdown period, our learning and teaching approach was moved to entirely online delivery with great success.
We plan to offer our semester 1 teaching as wholly online delivery using a combination of synchronous and asynchronous engagement. The latter will provide flexibility for student engagement at convenient times in these uncertain times. This approach has proved popular with NHS staff during the pandemic.
All our sessions will be recorded and hosted on our Virtual Learning Environment together with our extensive range of support resources.
However, dependent on Government and University advice, in semester 2, we aim to move to our mode of learning to campus-based face-to-face contact teaching supported by online activities.
Prospective students must therefore be able to ‘attend’ the published dates whether these are face-to-face or synchronous online interactive events. These options will allow our provision to continue, whilst ensuring your safety. We will advise students of the specific methods of delivery at registration.
