Teaching block one (TB1) runs from September until January and during this block, for this year, this course will be taught in a ‘blended’ way. This means that some teaching will be done online and some will be on campus. The online teaching, where you will be physically apart from your lecturer, can be ‘live’ with your lecturer present and where you’ll be able to interact. Some of it may be self-directed which means that you can access the learning materials at a time to suit you.
Your face-to-face, on campus sessions will be a mixture of:
- Skills and practical sessions
- OSCE assessment
- Clinician-led workshops
Your online learning and teaching may include:
- Revision sessions
- Continuous Assessment
- Q&A time
- On-demand e-lectures
- Self-paced module content
