Learning and Teaching Happenings and Resources

April 2023 | Issue 1 of 2

Our apologies, there was an error in our previous message. Please note the correction highlighted below:

The end of term is approaching!

As the term comes to an end, it is important to ensure that students have ample supports to complete the course successfully. Consider providing practice exams/quizzes on Brightspace, encourage students to form study groups, and remind students of upcoming assignment and final exam dates. If a student (or students) in your course requires an alternative arrangement for an online exam or assessment that requires invigilation, you can book a time for the student to write the assessment, from the location of the students’ choosing, with Zoom invigilation by LTSI.
