The teaching team are a busy making preparations for the start of our MSc Digital and Technology Solutions Degree Apprenticeship course in October 2020.
Covid-19 has challenged the delivery of all courses, but here at the University of Sunderland we have developed a hybrid approach to your programme of study, blending face-to-face with online teaching.
Our experience has shown that a blended method opens new learning opportunities for all, enabling you to develop skills such as time management, self-care and workload prioritisation, with support from the academic team and the wider University services available to you.
Module content is being prepared for online delivery, with the provision for face-to-face delivery where the situation allows. In the meantime, Digital and Technology skills will be primarily taught through a mix of academic and industry guest lectures using conference technology (Big Blue Button and Microsoft Teams). The course will also feature extensive individual and group-based practical exercises such as role-play, gamification, online quizzes, whiteboard, and discussion board activities. This approach will ensure you continue to develop the relevant research and contextual practical skills that can be applied in the workplace.
The teaching staff remain active and will be meeting you online during the first week to say hello.
In the meantime and in the lead up to commencing the course, please contact the Programme team if we can offer any further guidance before joining us:
