Online Alternatives


  • 27/11/2020 - Working On

I believe that all face-to-face teaching, this term atleast, should have a virtual or online alternative. Students who are self-isolating for the benefit of every other student should not be penalised or at a disadvantage due to missing sessions, as they may end up behind or missing credits. I am aware that in some subjects it may be difficult to move practical workshops online, but I do think it is essential for those self-isolating or shielding for their own protection.

We've been working with the University and Academic Reps to try and improve the equity between on-campus and online studying. There's still a lot of difficulty when it comes to students who have scheduled practical in-person sessions but who are self-isolating or shielding, but it's a work in progress! We hope to be able to update with more information soon.

I absolutely think that online alternatives should be a must! Although I and many other students I know do struggle with the online learning, the need for people to self-isolate and the potentiality of having to move everything online in the case of a more extreme lockdown renders it necessary to have universally-available, viable alternatives to in-person teaching.
