In a typical week, students will normally have 10 hours of contact teaching, of this, 7 hours will be delivered on-campus and 3 hours synchronous will be delivered online. At our partner colleges, a part-time student studying up to 75 credits per year, students, in a typical week will have around 5 hours of contact teaching of this, 4 hours will be delivered on-campus and 1 hour will be delivered synchronously online. N.B. This depends upon the modules studied each year.
Typically, on-campus contact time will be structured around:
- Lectures and seminars
- Group work
Online contact hours will be structured around:
- Assessment workshops
- Problem based learning.
- Skills development workshops
The delivery model of on-campus and online contact hours may vary across different partners. An example of two delivery models could include: At University of Worcester on-campus contact hours would normally be delivered over 2 days, with delivery of online contact hours taking place across 1 afternoon and 1 evening. However, at partners organisations, on-campus contact teaching hours may be delivered on one day with online contact teaching hours delivered across the week.
