Teaching and Learning Strategy
The teaching strategy will comprise a combination of online activities and face-to-face contact. There will also be regular meetings with supervisors, tutorials /workshops for learning core (technical) research skills and workshops in preparation for convening the three departmental showcases. Further details will be available on iLearn.
All lectures and tutorials are scheduled in your individual timetable. You may make a request to your tutor to attend a different tutorial on a one-off basis for extenuating circumstances. In most cases face-to-face lectures are recorded however, attendance is expected at both lectures and tutorials, as this is where the majority of learning occurs. Failure to attend may impact your final results. It is the responsibility of the student to contact their tutor by email to inform tutors if they are going to be absent.
