We are taking a flexible approach to teaching and in order to protect the health of our community, we will have to limit the amount of people inside our buildings at any one time to ensure we can meet two metre safe distancing guidelines.
Where possible, we will deliver as much small group teaching, including clinical and lab-based sessions on campus as we can. We have planned for these sessions using safe distancing measures and by staggering teaching times where possible to manage the flow of people in our buildings. For clinical and lab-based programmes, we will also be using immersive simulation technology to support your learning.
Other teaching, including large group sessions and lectures, will be delivered online, through our virtual learning environment, KEATS, and Microsoft Teams. This means that you can work at your own pace and from your preferred location. We have an excellent provision for online teaching and our academics will be using interactive ways to ensure you can fully engage with your studies and with your classmates, wherever you are.
The methods used will vary by programme, your faculties and programme leads will continue to provide you with updates for what this means for your programme. You will have access to free software to download on your personal devices and our Service Desk is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to support you with all your IT queries.
When you come to campus for in person sessions, you will need to follow additional safety measures to ensure that we are all keeping King’s safe together. Details of the extra measures are available on our website.
We will keep our approach under active review, and hope to increase the amount of small group teaching we can deliver on campus later in the academic year.
