The Childhood Studies team are busy making preparations for the start of our course. Covid-19 has challenged the delivery of our course but we have developed an effective way to deliver your programme of study, blending face-to-face and online teaching with reinforcement sessions.
Our experience has shown that this approach opens new learning opportunities for all, enabling you to develop graduate skills such as time management, self-care and workload prioritisation, with support from the Childhood Studies academic team and the wider University services available to you.
Modules will continue to be taught and practiced via online lectures and seminars, with some weekly face-to-face contact time. This approach will ensure you develop your skills and knowledge both online using conference technology (Microsoft Teams) and on campus. Currently, Year 1 students are scheduled for weekly on-campus sessions on Thursday mornings between 9am-12noon. This format will be followed for all teaching weeks of semester 1, apart from week 13 (week commencing 26 October) which is your independent study week. A similar format will be followed in semester 2. During these on-campus sessions you will have the opportunity to see your lecturers and tutors and discuss academic and other issues that are of concern to you.
In the meantime, the Childhood Studies team remains active and will be meeting you during the first week of teaching.
In the coming months before commencing your studies please contact your Programme Leader if we can offer any further guidance before joining us:
