This week all students are invited to take part in Foundation Week, a new, specially-designed online programme of academic skill development activities.
Foundation Week, which runs 5-9 October, will provide you with an opportunity to connect with your School or Department, and engage with a variety of online activities, events and modules.
We know that in recent months you have all faced considerable disruption to your studies, so the aim of this week is to prepare you for the new academic semester and to help you plan for the year ahead. In particular, the programme will equip you with the skills required to make the most of hybrid learning.
The University considers Foundation Week to be a formal teaching week, and as such, all undergraduate students (of all years) are expected to engage with it. Postgraduate students are also invited to attend.
Please remember, for those students whose formal teaching has already begun, you should prioritise your scheduled teaching commitments. You will be able to access Foundation Week activities throughout the week to catch up on at a time that suits you.
All information and resources linked to Foundation Week will be accessible via our Virtual Learning Environment, Canvas, with live events accessed via Microsoft Teams or Zoom.
You can access Canvas, via this link, from the Student Intranet, or on the Canvas app – available to download on the App Store and Google Play.
If you have any problems logging on, you can request help through the Computing Services Service Desk.
If you are unfamiliar with Canvas, we recommend you take the ‘Canvas Help for students’ course first to help you understand more about using the Canvas platform.
We’ve put together a suggested schedule for you to follow on our Foundation Week webpage. However, you also have the option of working through the modules in your own time, ensuring that you prioritise any departmental activities relating to your programme of study. You may also have one or more departmental Foundation Week modules, so make sure you access them under ‘Courses’ in Canvas.
We’ll also be sending daily reminders with further instructions on how to join live events through Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
