Teaching and learning

The Vice-Chancellor announced on 6 January that almost all teaching and learning will be conducted online during Lent Term 2021. More information to follow.

Seminars and supervisions

We have made larger teaching spaces available for in-person teaching and equipped two seminar rooms with 65” interactive 4K touchscreens, video conferencing software and document cameras to facilitate blended learning and enable students to participate in sessions together, whether they are in the room or joining remotely. 

Fellows and supervisors can book these rooms for in-person teaching.

Attending a seminar or supervision 

Your Supervisor, Director of Studies or Tutor will speak to you ahead of time to ensure you understand the new measures and answer any questions. 

The College’s guidance on hand sanitiser and face coverings applies until you enter the room and are advised by your supervisor that face coverings can be removed. If you are unable to immediately enter the room, please avoid waiting in communal areas and instead wait in the closest outdoor area. 

If you require a supervision to be conducted remotely, please contact your supervisor or seminar convenor directly in advance of the supervision. 

The rooms 

Each room’s maximum capacity and ventilation has been assessed and between-session cleaning procedures have been introduced. Between each session, rooms will be ventilated and contact surfaces such as chairs, door handles and switches will be sanitised. Sessions will end promptly to ensure this can be carried out before the next session begins. 

In all circumstances, please follow the displayed protocol for the room you are in and your supervisors guidance. If you are unsure or have any questions, please contact your supervisor or the Tutorial team.
