Teaching and Learning During Covid-19

Information for Offer Holders Joining Us in Autumn 2021

Letter from Head of Department of Marketing, Languages and Tourism

We are delighted you are interested in joining us at the University of Lincoln and I am writing to let you know about our planning for the new academic year. You currently have an offer of a place at the University and we want to keep you updated so you can start preparing for your future, should you be successful in meeting any outstanding conditions of your offer.

We fully intend your experience with us at Lincoln to be engaging, supportive and academically challenging. We are determined to provide our students with a safe and exciting campus experience, ensuring you benefit from the best that both face-to-face and online teaching offer. We have kept our focus on friendliness and community spirit at Lincoln and we look forward to your participation in that community.

As you know, the UK Government has published its roadmap for the easing of Covid lockdown restrictions in England. There are still some uncertainties for universities around possible restrictions for the next academic year, particularly in relation to social distancing in large-group teaching. We are planning in line with government guidance for both face-to-face and online teaching to ensure you have a good campus experience and can complete all the requirements for your programme. We are fully prepared to adapt and flex our plans if changes in government regulations make this necessary during the year.

Face-to-face teaching and interaction with tutors and course mates are key to students’ learning and the broader student experience. Face-to-face sessions will be prioritised where it is most valuable, particularly for seminars, tutorials, workshops, practicals and lab sessions. Students tell us that there are real benefits to some elements of online learning within a blended approach, such as revisiting recorded materials and developing new digital skills and confidence.  At Lincoln we aim to take forward the best aspects of both.

This letter sets out in detail various aspects of the planned experience at Lincoln for your chosen subject area, and we hope the information is helpful as you plan for your future.

Teaching and Learning

Within Lincoln International Business School (LIBS) we are planning to maximise face-to-face teaching for your seminars and for any module where numbers are small enough to run workshops and some lecture content safely. We also know that students have really valued being able to access our lectures remotely (you can learn anywhere), but still engage in a live taught session, asking your lecturer questions in real time.  You also don’t need to feel nervous asking a question out loud as you might in a large lecture theatre. These online sessions will also be recorded for you to replay or view later if you miss them. We will continue to record attendance for both face-to-face and remote events.

For our face-to-face events, you are likely to engage in group discussions, you might undertake exercises, practical demonstrations and give presentations from work you have prepared in advance for classes. These sessions are also flexible for you to ask questions of fellow students and your lecturers to help your learning.  They are also a great way to make friends and maintain relationships with fellow students on your programme. We will continue to monitor the situation regarding Covid and take feedback from yourselves as students, always following government advice and direction, so our plans could see an increase in the face-to-face events we hold. We will, however, continue with some more blended and flexible provision so we maximise the number of students who can access as many of our learning events anywhere and as often as possible.

The teaching week will usually include both lectures and seminars, except for the first and final weeks when you will usually have lectures only in the first week and seminars only in the final week. Each module will have 3 hours of contact time allocated to it (you will usually have 2 hours of lectures and 1 hour of seminar/workshop) and you will study 4 modules in each Semester.

You will experience a range of assessment methods including coursework, examinations and presentations, some of which might be online.  This will vary between modules. In first year, everyone will have some sessions in a computer lab. Should we need to go online we will be supporting your learning of SPSS (all students), STATA, and other digital packages for quantitative methods, from a distance using a site and remote licence.

Our assessment processes will likewise follow government guidelines in relation to social distancing and safety. Most of our assessments are submitted online as standard in normal circumstances. Where there are exams, in-class tests, or oral assessments, we will decide nearer the assessment period whether they go ahead in this form, or in an online variant (for example, ‘take-home’ exams) depending on government guidelines on the pandemic at the time.

Your programme normally benefits from a number of study visits – both domestic and international. These will be adapted and modified where appropriate (such as virtual tours of organisations), if a physical visit proves not to be possible, to ensure you can achieve the learning objectives. Again, we will adhere to government advice on social-distancing and in the case of international study visits, these will be operated on the advice of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

We would also note two other aspects of your studies that are particularly important in these times. First, you will have a Personal Tutor – a member of academic staff who is your designated ‘go to’ person for advice and support, both pastoral and academic. You will see your Personal Tutor online and in small socially-distanced face-to-face group sessions, and they are available for any one-to-one meetings you would like. Second, independent learning continues to be an essential aspect of university learning, and guided reading and other independent engagement still is key, this year as any, to performing well in your studies. We also encourage you to take part in extra-curricular activities, like becoming a student representative.

We hope you will take part in all the induction activities we plan for you, some of which will be online this year. These include meetings with your teaching team, including your Programme Leader, your Personal Tutor, and LIBS support services. Social events in your first few weeks of term will give you the chance to meet our current Global Certificate students and hear about their experiences. These socials will include games, coffee and catch ups, quizzes and other activities designed to make you feel part of our global community.

The University Campus

We are very proud of our beautiful and vibrant campuses at the University of Lincoln and we have used our extensive indoor and outdoor spaces to provide students with access to study and social areas as well as learning resources and facilities, adapting them where necessary in line with government guidance. All the mitigations and safety measures you would expect are in place on our campuses (at Lincoln, Riseholme and Holbeach), such as hand sanitisers, one-way systems, and other social distancing measures where these are required.

Student Wellbeing and Support

The University’s Student Wellbeing Centre and Student Support Centre are fully open for face-to-face and online support. Should you, as one of our applicants, have any questions about coming to Lincoln in October or any other concerns, these specialist teams are here for you. You can contact Student Wellbeing and the Student Support Centre by visiting https://studentservices.lincoln.ac.uk where service details and contact information are available, or if you are in Lincoln you can make an appointment to meet a member of the team.

To enable you to make the most out of your experience in Lincoln and to help you access course materials and other services, we recommend that you have a desktop, laptop or tablet device available during your studies. This will enable you to engage easily with our online learning platforms from your student accommodation or from home. Students can use IT equipment on campus in the Library, our learning lounges, and specialist academic areas; however, there may not always be a space free when you have a timetabled session or an assessment to complete which is why we recommend you have your own device too, if possible. If you are struggling to access IT equipment or reliable internet services, please contact ICT for technical support and Student Support who can assist you with further advice and information.

We are committed to providing you with the best possible start to university life and to helping you to prepare for your time with us. As part of this commitment, you can access our Student Life pre-arrival online support package. This collection of digital resources, advice and helpful tips created by current students is designed to help you prepare for the all-important first steps into higher education, enabling you to learn within a supportive community and to make the most of the new opportunities that the University of Lincoln provides. When you are ready, you can begin by going to studentlife.lincoln.ac.uk/starting.

Students’ Union

Your Students’ Union is here to make sure that you get the most from every aspect of your student experience. They will be providing a huge range of in-person and virtual events and opportunities - you are sure to find something perfect for you! Meet people and find a new hobby by joining one of their 150 sports teams and societies. Grab lunch between teaching or a drink with friends in The Swan, Towers or The Barge. Learn new skills and boost your CV by taking part in training courses and volunteering opportunities in your spare time. Grab a bike from the Cycle Hire and explore the city you will be calling home.

To start off the new academic year, your Students’ Union will be bringing you The Official Lincoln Freshers Week 2021, with a huge line-up of social events, club nights, fayres and activities for you enjoy (restrictions permitting). Keep an eye on www.facebook.com/lincolnfreshers21 for line-up and ticket updates, so you don’t miss out.

Most importantly, your Students’ Union will always be there for you when you need it most; making sure that your voice as a student is always heard. The SU Advice Centre can provide independent advice and support on housing, finance, welfare and academic issues. As well as this, your Course Representatives are always on hand to make sure that you are getting the best from your academic experience. To find out more about the Students’ Union’s events, opportunities, support and how to get in contact go to: www.lincolnsu.com.

Student Accommodation

Many applicants will choose to live in dedicated student accommodation on, or close to, campus and you may well have already booked your student residence for the upcoming year. All University-managed student accommodation will have our Residential Wardens in place. Residential Wardens are here to help you settle into your new accommodation and will be offering flatmate and residential support activities throughout the year. If you have booked University accommodation, you will have already heard from us with further details on where you will be living to help you prepare. If you have not yet booked your accommodation, we still have plenty of options available. In the meantime, lots of advice and information can be found on the accommodation pages of our website.

The information detailed in this letter will form part of your agreement with the University of Lincoln. If we do not hear from you to the contrary prior to enrolment, we will assume that you acknowledge and accept the information contained in this letter. Adaptations to how we work may have to be made in line with any future changes in government guidance, and we will communicate these with you as necessary. Please do review the University’s Admissions Terms and Conditions (in particular sections 8 and 9) and Student Complaints Procedure so you understand your rights and the agreement between the University and its students.

We very much hope this information is useful to help you plan for the next step in your academic journey, and we look forward to welcoming you here at Lincoln this Autumn. This is the start of a new phase and will be an exciting time for all of us. If you have any questions, please do email me at fahmed@lincoln.ac.uk

This module is optional for all taught on campus undergraduate students within Lincoln International Business School. Study Abroad is a year long module which enables students to spend time studying abroad at one of the Universitys approved partner institutions. During the year spent abroad, students share classes with local students and study on a suite of locally-delivered taught modules which have been approved in advance by the University. As many partner institutions support internships it is anticipated that some students will elect to combine study (minimum one semester equivalent) with work and or a period of volunteering. Eligible students must have completed their second year of study to a satisfactory standard (normally with an average of a 2.2 or above, dependent upon partner requirements) standard and successfully completed the application process. Upon completion of the study period abroad, each student will be required to submit a portfolio including a reflection on the experience of living and studying in a different cultural environment and the skills acquired.OptionalProfessional Practice 2023-24MGT2037MLevel 52023-24This module is aimed at those students who have decided to take a year out of formal studies to gain accredited work experience and are registered on a degree programme with an accredited professional practice element.

Some modules are assessed by way of requiring students to engage in simulated negotiation and mediation exercises. Other modules may require students to engage in an online conference along with students who are also studying international tourism at other universities. Students who take our Law for Tourism, Events and Sports Management module are expected to represent and argue a case in favour of their clients. For those undertaking the optional Event Management module in the second year, students are expected to be involved in putting on an assessed event.
