Redesigning modules for online delivery

Teams conference


The above picture captures the end of one of many emergency online modules for thirty post-graduate taught full-time students from WMG last week.
Redesigning modules for online delivery in such a short space of time has been a major undertaking for all of the teaching staff within WMG since the lock-down began, with a significant effort required by everyone, both students and staff. The redesign involves not only converting the face to face taught content to be successful online, but also includes for example managing different time zones and other external pressures of managing an MSc online during these exceptional circumstances, whilst still looking to potentially enable graduation for these students this year.
It is good to see all the hard work and effort developing and delivering modules is appreciated by the students and, although it was not the same as seeing the class face to face, we all made the best of the communication options available, ably demonstrated by these nine students from the module, who were pleased to have completed the challenging but hopefully enjoyable week.
