How am I going to be taught this semester?
This semester, your teaching will be made up of the following:
Lectures: These are pre-recorded videos which will be posted to the canvas page for your module every week and will be followed by exercises, further reading and links to explore.
Online, live seminars: These are run via Zoom. There will be a Zoom link on your modules in Canvas for each seminar. This will be on the same page as the work you will need to do ahead of the sessions. Your module coordinators will send announcements about this. You will need to click on the correct Zoom link at the time scheduled on your timetable.
Module workshops: These are an opportunity to work through case studies, core academic content or exercises. You will be able to ask questions of your teaching team and have an opportunity to go over areas which you think are important or unclear.
Programme workshops: These sessions provide an important opportunity to ask questions and discuss key topics with your programme director and wider teaching team. These sessions cover a range of programme level topics including accreditation, revision and assessment and identify cross-module themes and synergies.
