Induction and tutorials are conducted face to face virtually at a designated time. Meetings with your tutor are scheduled on at least 3 occasions to discuss your progress and prepare you for assessments.
Teaching is conducted through an interactive virtual learning environment and includes recorded seminars, webinars, quizzes and a self-assessment tool which you can engage with in your own time. Recorded seminars contain the key content of the course. Recorded seminars are supplemented with high quality online materials and handouts to support you in becoming an effective tutor. Materials can be downloaded and/or engaged with on screen. An online self-assessment tool informed by the National Occupational Standards and the Tutors’ Association Code of Professional Practice and Code of Ethics is designed for you to consider your increasing competency.
The University places emphasis on enabling you to develop the independent learning capabilities that will equip you for lifelong learning and future employment, as well as academic achievement. A mixture of independent study, teaching and academic support from Student Services and Library Services, and also the personal academic tutoring system enables you to reflect on progress and build up a profile of skills, achievements and experiences that will help you to flourish and be successful.
