Distance Learning students: All delivery remains unchanged.
All other students:
Lectures. In the case of lectures to large groups of students these will be delivered online as a blend of pre-recorded and if possible live sessions. In the case of lectures to smaller groups, students will have the opportunity to book spaces within the lecture rooms on the Uxbridge campus. Students will be invited to use the room booking system, which will work on a first-come-first served basis. The number of spaces available will be dependent on social distancing requirements and the constraints that arise when timetabling for a whole university.
Tutorial Support will primarily be provided using online conferencing tools. It is hoped that some tutorial support may be able to take place on campus.
Computer Laboratory Sessions: For computer-based lab sessions computers on campus will be made available. If students wish to use the rooms, they will be invited to use the room booking system, which will work on a first-come-first served basis. The number of spaces available will be dependent on social distancing requirements and the constraints that arise when timetabling for a whole university.
In using the computer rooms the students will need to bring plug in headphones to access the audio elements of the sessions.
Laboratory Support and Group Project Activities: The intention is any laboratory-based experiments and group project activities will be on campus.
For any supplementary practical elements, students will be able to learn by watching the pre-recorded demonstrations of the operation of the equipment in the laboratory. In addition to video recording, all other necessary supporting resources will be provided. Students should then be able to learn further through analysing the data in line with the requirements of the activity. Students can have their doubts clarified through email or through online meetings. This will depend on social distancing and will take into account any vulnerabilities of students and staff.
MSc Dissertations: A wide range of project topics based on their subject specialisation will be made available to students, where the project involves practical work students will be required to work in an organised way by booking appointments and following all procedures. If this is not feasible then virtual and theoretical equivalent projects will be available for students.
Assessment: The methods of assessment are varied.If it is not possible for those assessments that have previously taken place on campus, to occur on campus the assessment will be administered online.
Students will have remote access to the required specialist software.
