Learning & Teaching Methods

This course is primarily designed for face to face learning with you attending your lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the campus is closed TEC Partnership will deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted with some lessons happening in small groups and others happening using online sessions and support.

Teaching and learning is conducted through a mixture of tutor lead sessions from experienced and qualified tutors that are experts in their field, group work, individual academic research, guest lectures in person or virtual and group presentations.
