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.
