Guidelines for participation in Zoom Summer Courses:
Our zoom summer course will be in the form of a Zoom meeting. Tutors will endeavour to ensure that they will be facilitated as close to the face-to-face method of delivery as originally intended. There will be regular discussions and group activities throughout the day. The Tutors will be making use of break-out rooms etc.
The Tutors will be marking the official Department Roll each day, on your behalf, in both the morning and the afternoon. In addition to this, an attendee list will be printed off from our Zoom account. This details the time of each time you log in and out of the Zoom meeting. This is required by the Department in addition to the official Roll book.
Participants must be online for the whole duration of the course. They must have their camera on at all times and have their name displayed. It must be the name they used when registering for the course/zoom*. Participants must engage fully with the tutor and other participants.
Participants are not permitted to record the zoom sessions.
There is a strict limit of 25 participants on each course. The link must not be shared with other people.
N.B. It is the responsibility of the participant to ensure that they have adequate broadband and IT to access the course. Full attendance is required to be awarded 3 EPV days. 2 EPV days will be awarded for 4 days attendance. (Regardless of the reason for the absence, including poor broadband connection). No EPV days will be awarded for less than 4 days attendance.
The course fee cannot be refunded for any reason.
