Lights… Camera… Action!
It’s an exciting day here at Crow Trees as we embark on an ambitious new plan to evolve our courses for the post-COVID era.
We need to accept that it may be some time before our traditional face to face teaching sessions can resume, because of the need for continued social distancing, but we are also aware that there is still a need for this training provision. So, how do we deal with these two disparate requirements?
Over the next few months, we are aiming to produce videos for each of the teaching sessions on our four distance learning courses. These will be added into our online packs so that students will be able to access them in their own time. Here, Rebecca Owen is pictured filming the first of our Diabetes workshops with Sally, of Molineaux Productions.
We are also intending to conclude courses with a series of Zoom webinars, which enable students to speak with our tutors in Q&A sessions. We’ve been in constant contact with Teesside University, which accredits these courses, and the team there have agreed that for the time being, this alternate form of teaching will be acceptable for students who wish to take the accredited course.
Once we have completed these courses, we will then move on to look at which of our other courses and study days can be adapted to this method.
If you are already studying on one of these courses, the video workshop sessions will be added to your online pack as soon as they become available.
And please don’t worry. We fully intend to reintroduce face to face teaching as soon as it is safe for us to do so. If you would prefer to wait until this happens, then we can work with you on that as well.
