Teaching Information

Before and After Teaching Sessions - Guidelines

 

Arriving at teaching rooms

  • Students should only arrive at their teaching room a few minutes before the scheduled start time for their class.
  • If students arrive earlier than this we ask that they go and wait outside the front of the building, to minimise the risk of a large group gathering inside, until just before their teaching session is scheduled to start.
  • Students should generally find the room empty (because back-to-back classes in teaching rooms are not being scheduled to allow cleaning between sessions) and should enter the room rather than waiting outside.  If they find the room still occupied (e.g. by cleaners) we ask that they go and wait outside the front of the building to minimise the risk of a large group gathering inside, until just before their teaching session is scheduled to start.

At the end of classes

Teaching rooms should be vacated quickly in order to enable cleaning to take place, and students should not congregate in corridors outside teaching rooms at the end of classes.

 

 


Teaching Information

PhD Students

Your supervisor has overall responsibility in providing guidance for your work towards the degree, and will discuss with you a schedule for regular meetings. These meetings may be in person or via video conferencing.  Seminars on training, support and development activities will be held in the Institute and streamed live via Zoom to allow those isolating or in quarantine to participate.  Details of these seminars will be circulated at the start of each term.


M.Phil. Students

Teaching on the M.Phil. programmes this year will be a combination of in-person and online activities.  All in-person teaching will be recorded so that students learning remotely have full access. In-person teaching and supervisions will take place in venues that have been assessed to ensure they meet Covid-19 safety standards.  For some of these activities students will be divided into groups to ensure sufficient social distancing.  Activities may be moved online if Covid-19 safety guidelines change.

Induction Week:

There are specific arrangements for Induction Week. Students will attend in-person inductions for the Library and Computing Facilities in the Institute of Criminology. Other presentation sessions will take place in the Lady Mitchell Hall on the Sidgwick Site or the Babbage Theatre on the New Museums Site.  Please refer to the Induction Week timetable for further information.

Core Timetable:

Both M.Phil. programmes, the M.Phil. in Criminology and the M.Phi.l in Criminological Research, comprise a combination of compulsory and optional courses. Please see the M.Phil. Handbook for further details.  

Teaching arrangements are as follows:

Compulsory courses:

Criminological Theories and Criminological Research Methods These will be taught by pre-recorded lectures and in-person discussion groups (in the Institute Seminar Rooms B3/B4).  Pre-recorded lectures will be uploaded onto Moodle a week before the discussion groups.

Optional Seminars:

These will be taught in-person (in the Institute Seminar Rooms B3/B4); except Criminal Justice Players and Processes which will be taught by pre-recorded lectures and in-person discussion groups (in Law Faculty, LG 18).

Optional Training Courses:

Academic Presentation and Writing Skills These sessions will be presented live online via Zoom.
Computer Based Training: Introduction to Quantitative Analysis, Social Network Analysis and NVivo Training These training courses will be given in-person (in the Computer Room).

 

Supervisions:

Each student will meet with their supervisor by arrangement approximately once every two weeks.  Supervisions will be held in person unless there is a requirement to meet online for health reasons.  Supervisions may take place in the Institute meeting rooms or other venues as agreed between the supervisor and student.  All supervision meeting venues will have been assessed to ensure they reach Covid-19 safety standards.
