Over the lockdown period we have endeavoured to provide remote blended learning wherever suitable.
When planning our delivery of 2020/21 Higher Education programmes we have, and will continue to take government advice and work within their guidelines. At present these guidelines are trending towards a relaxing of restrictions, however we are aware that any change in circumstances will impact our planning and we will react accordingly.
Ultimately it is our wish to provide as much face to face contact as is possible, but with safety as a priority. To achieve this it may be a requirement to limit class sizes to facilitate social distancing limit the size of a learner ‘bubble’. Another strategy would be stagger start and finish times or use a ‘base room’ strategy to minimise movement of learners.
Where workshop provision is required we will require all PPE to be supplied by the learner except where it is practical for us to disinfect suitably.
Where these measures are not possible, some theoretical lectures will be delivered online using conference technology such as Microsoft Teams. This form of remote learning should also include mentored support using the ‘chat’ facility in addition to the sharing of learning materials and scheduled sessions.
