Have you needed to make changes to the way you deliver your topics in the context of COVID-19? Wondered what the process is – whether forms are needed and who you need to speak to? Here we answer your questions on how to make temporary adjustments to delivery and/or topic availabilities.
If, because of COVID-19:
- you need to temporarily adjust the way in which you deliver an existing topic availability, no proposal forms need to be completed and submitted to the Educational Quality Team. For example, if a topic availability currently includes an on-campus lecture and tutorial that will be temporarily delivered online, you can communicate the temporary arrangement with students with no need to make a formal change to your topic availability. It will remain in systems as an ‘internal’ availability and you can revert to the on-campus delivery when suitable to do so.
Please work directly with your College Education Resources Coordinator to ensure that any necessary timetable updates are made for students.
- you need a solution to facilitate temporary, online delivery of a topic to international onshore students who are not able to travel to Australia, no proposal forms need to be completed and submitted to the Educational Quality Team. You should discuss your requirements with your College Education Resources Coordinator. The temporary online arrangement for the delivery of the topic should then be communicated to your international students (who are unable to be onshore at the current time), with internal delivery to resume as soon as possible.
- you want a new online class within an existing topic availability, to support increased choice for students in the context of COVID, please discuss your requirements with your College Education Resources Coordinator.
- you want a new topic availability IN ADDITION to those you already have, to support increased student choice in the context of COVID, please provide the details to the Educational Quality Team firstname.lastname@example.org in an email, or where multiple topics are involved, in a concise spreadsheet. An Educational Quality Team member will facilitate approval from your College Dean (Education) for additional availabilities of this nature, and if approved, these additional availabilities will be reflected in systems against the topic data so they are transparent to students.
All other changes to availabilities involving delivery mode (e.g. internal, online), tuition pattern (e.g. lectures, tutorials etc), or the addition or removal of an availability not brought about by COVID, and intended to become an ongoing arrangement, are to be managed in the usual way via the submission of a Form L to the Educational Quality Team at email@example.com
