It was really important for us to adapt our teaching methods, as we all felt that our students were thirsty for more interaction.
The first thing we did was introduce revision classes for the May and October examinations. Students can log in to the Virtual Learning Environment and have their questions answered by their course convenor at a set time.
There are monthly online clinics, where students can join and ask me questions. My forum, Ask Me Anything, is open 24/7: I respond to student queries within 48 hours.
I've been a teaching academic for 25 years, so I'm eager to have some personal contact with students. I've been a student on the programme too, so I’ve seen it from the inside.
I'm also doing termly face-to-face clinics with UK students, so if any UK-based students are interested in meeting me at UCL, I'm very happy to do that. Wherever you are, I'm here to help you with academic or strategic questions.
