Throughout our first term of blended learning, we’ve been listening to our students. In response, we are making a series of improvements. Here’s how online learning will look next term.    

media
  • To ensure the quality of your education is not compromised, training, resources and guidance is being given to all staff to help them provide digitally enhanced learning. Lecturers will peer review each other’s online material to share and develop best practice. 
  • Our blended learning system combines online lectures and interactive sessions with on-campus teaching (in small groups), lab and practical sessions.
  • We're creating a set of 'netiquette' guidelines for lecturers and students taking part in online teaching.
  • We are working to ensure online teaching is accessible to all, improving captioning and sound. We're also making it easier to book virtual drop-in sessions with teaching staff.
  • Where you need to attend lab sessions or workshops we will ensure these take place in strict compliance with health and safety requirements.
  • Online learning will include interactive sessions where you will be able to share your views with others. Teaching materials will be made available in advance of timetabled sessions.

You can find more details about our plans for teaching in the spring term in our FAQs.

  • The Templeman Library on the Canterbury campus and the Drill Hall Library on the Medway campus are open with socially distanced study spaces.
  • Many of our students already take advantage of our extensive digital resources. Library staff will be very happy to help if you need any advice or support to access these materials.
  • Where you need access to specialist equipment on campus for your studies, we are putting plans in place, taking account of all government guidance, to make this possible.
