We have moved to a hybrid model of learning, where many of your class materials will be online but will be enhanced with on-campus sessions; meeting you in person is important to us and enables tutors to work more closely with you to aid understanding of your subject.
There will be lots of opportunities for both face-to-face and online contact, and you will be assigned a personal tutor, as well as having your pathway leader and module leaders for support and guidance. Regular contact between tutors and students will be encouraged via the use of technologies including Canvas, email, Skype and Microsoft Teams.
You are going to be taught some really interesting topics and online teaching will be live and interactive. The main application utilised for the science elements will be Nearpod, which enables questioning for formative assessment to be included alongside the presentation. Teaching will also be supported with audio via Discord. Virtual shared whiteboards will also be made use of to add further explanation where necessary. You will be given a variety of activities to complete each week to support your learning and development and learning outcomes will be released before each lecture to facilitate background reading and research prior to the session. All lecture material will be made available on CANVAS and designed to enable you to gradually acquire the necessary skills, subject knowledge and confidence needed to progress onto your chosen degree.
