Teaching and Learning During COVID-19

The current COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated some adaptations to ensure a safe learning experience for all students and staff.

From autumn 2020 we plan to deliver an on-campus experience with appropriate social distancing. It is our intention that teaching will be delivered through a mixture of face-to-face and online sessions.

Wherever possible, we have adapted and refined practical and hands-on sessions to allow these to take place face-to-face, with smaller class sizes where academic staff engage with each student as an individual, working with them to enhance their strengths. Students get to know each other better and appropriate social distancing measures can be maintained.

All the learning outcomes of the course will be delivered through this approach. As and when restrictions start to lift, we aim to deliver an increasing amount of face-to-face teaching.

Our aim will be that online delivery is engaging and that students have the opportunity to interact with their tutors and be part of a learning community with fellow students through a range of different digital tools, including our dedicated online managed learning environment. This will help prepare students for a 21st Century workplace, with seamless blending of digital and face-to-face interactions.

We will be clear with students at the start of teaching about the specific approach to teaching for their programme.

Lectures involving large groups will be delivered online using interactive software in a range of different formats to ensure an engaging experience.

At Lincoln we aim to make every contact count and seminars and small group sessions will be managed to maximise face-to-face contact.

Practicals, workshops, studio sessions and performance-based sessions are being planned to be delivered face-to-face in a socially distanced way with appropriate PPE.

It is currently hard to predict the availability of trips, placements and other external experiences, but in all cases we are working hard to try and offer these where possible and within the framework of government guidelines at the time.

Personal tutoring is key to our delivery as this provides students with a dedicated tutor to support them throughout their time here at the University of Lincoln.

Safety and adherence to government guidelines is our first concern as we support students to engage in all aspects of their study here at Lincoln.

The module draws on the recent research from the area of behavioural finance, biology and psychology to present a foundation, upon which to build a more critical understanding of the rational economics foundations. The module covers alternative modus operandi for economic interactions, such as Prospect Theory and other models.

The module investigates situations and the assumptions about behaviour which gives rise to certain behavioural biases, which constitute observable phenomena. These are then generalised to the “probable effects” on markets.

Module Overview

This module aims to analyse the experience of three major industrial economies, the UK, the USA and Germany, between the two world wars. The period was one of extremes, in the 1920s the British economy stagnated while Germany experienced hyperinflation and United States enjoyed a prolonged boom ending with the Wall Street Crash of 1929. The 1930s saw the great depression engulf all three countries, the birth of Keynesian economics and governments playing an increasingly active role in the economy. The module is designed to examine economic debates of the time, analyse government responses to the changing economic environment and consider the policy legacy of the period.

Module Overview

The Independent Study provides an opportunity for students to undertake a piece of original research that utilises the skills and interest developed over previous years. It is an extended piece of work that entails the expression of thought and creativity and the application of analytical skills and critical reasoning. In consultation with supervisory tutors, who provide support throughout, a research topic will be selected. However, the focus is upon the ability of students to take ownership of their own project and to complete the research project, demonstrating their abilities as independent learners and producers.

† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
