The online curriculum is not working


  • 27/11/2020 - Working On

All throughout first and second year we were told that catching up with lecture capture is not the same and not as good as actually going to the lecture. Now that the university doesn't have any other choice we are being informed that departments have adapted so the quality of education is the same - it's not. I am working harder than I ever have before and my grades are still dropping. The university needs to understand that an online pre-recorded lecture is not effective education and is not good value for our extortionate tuition fees. YUSU needs to pressure the university to do something about it before students' grades and mental health suffer as a result.

Other than transferring physical face to face teaching what has the university done? Do we have the exact same timetable, amount of contact hours and assessments as last years equivalent students? This year has been different to any other and it is not fair that we continue to have the same expectations from the university as previous students.

COREY GREENING

Now more than ever university is without choice not a priority for many students and effort needs to be given by the university and individual department to counter the impact we have felt.
