Blended Learning Case Studies

Below are some examples of how CCCU have responded to Blended Learning.

If you would like to share with the University how you have responded to Blended Learning, please contact your Faculty Director of Learning and Teaching or your Digital Academic Developer (formally Faculty Learning Technologist). 

Placements are a fundamental and popular element of the BSc Sport Coaching Science. 

At Level 5, students take the 20 credit ‘The sport coach in action’ module, which requires them to attend a sports placement for at least 40 hours.  At Level 6, students taken the 40 credit ‘The expert sport coach’, which requires them to spend 60 hours on placement.  Both run long and thin, across two semesters. 

Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, few placements have been available this academic year.

Welcome Week has always been a big event for our Sports and Exercise Sciences Programmes.  Pre-Covid, new students began their Programme with a week full of sporting activities.  Allowing new students to meet their peers and, importantly, to become integrated into the wider sports sciences community. 

So, when planning Welcome Week for 2020/21, the Team began with their core Welcome Week objective: to build the learning community.

The Level 5 Malta field trip is a highlight for Tourism Management and Hospitality Management students – and staff.  The trip builds community, enhances multiple academic skills and gives students the opportunity to experience tourism and hospitality management in ‘the real world’. 

In March 2020, it began to become clear that the Malta field trip would be cancelled, due to the Coronavirus.

Supporting our students through 1-2-1s is central to attainment, retention and other outcomes.  However, arranging 1-2-1s has become more complex, due to Covid-restrictions on our socially-distanced campus. 

Our Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences Programmes have previously operated a largely open-door policy.  This allowed students to pop in and ask questions, seek support, or just have a chat, at any time during the working day.
