Last week saw a a conderable Absence Rate and students must text me if they are unable to attend class.
I have to say that I am finding it hard to keep momentum going under the circumstances. These resource, however, enable a blended learning approach where I can use class time as a resource for students to use me, either in person or remotely.
I will discuss the issues this week.
The BSc Hons Group will not be in class but resources are available relating to the Unban Regeneration Class which would have been on friday
