Academic staff will now have received a copy of the Principles of Course Design for Hybrid Learning toolkit, as well as a variety of Practice Guide resources focused around four core themes (Personal Tutoring, Student Engagement, Flexible Assessment, and Creative Learning). We have begun to cover each part of the toolkit in our daily blogs, in order to provide a brief overview of how to use the toolkit.

The toolkit is found at: https://blogs.tees.ac.uk/lteonline/learning-and-teaching/principles-of-course-design-for-hybrid-learning/

These guides can be found at: https://blogs.tees.ac.uk/lteonline/2020/06/15/staff-guides-to-support-practice-through-the-hybrid-delivery-model/

Parts one and two of the toolkit blogs can be found here:

The LTE team is here to support you through this temporary transition to hybrid learning, and we are fully committed to doing everything we can to support you.

You may wish to email us with your queries at elearning@tees.ac.uk.

We also offer one-to-one or small group online drop-in sessions for tailored support and guidance. This can be in relation to the range of different tools available to put your hybrid learning model into practice or to develop your expertise and understanding around assessment and feedback, learning spaces and active learning. We can also offer support with learning activities, digital communication and digital solutions for assessments.

How to access an online drop in

We offer 30-minute bookable slots with a Principle Lecturer, Digital Learning Developer or Online Learning designer. The process to access an ‘online drop-in’ is as follows:

Staff wishing to access an ‘online drop-in’ will email elearning@tees.ac.uk, providing us with:

i. The theme of the request (what you need help with).

ii. Your availability (we’d ask that you give us at least a one-hour window during which you’d be available for a ‘drop-in’).

A Principal Lecturer, Digital Learning Developer or Online Learning Designer will schedule a 30-minute Microsoft Teams Meeting.

You will receive an invitation (as you would with a meeting arranged through Outlook) with a link through which you join the meeting at the appropriate time.

Note. You do not need any special software or equipment to book into one of the drop-in sessions., you simply need a device which can access Microsoft Teams such as a smartphone, iPad, laptop or PC. Teams can be accessed through a web browser (https://teams.microsoft.com) and is also available for download on Windows, macOS and Android.
