Teaching remotely

Teaching at Oxford University in the 20/21 academic year will have a strong focus on tutorials and other small-group teaching, complemented by online alternatives for larger group teaching, lectures and some exams, at least for the first term.

We must plan now for a flexible and inclusive approach to teaching that preserves the high quality, personalised education that is our hallmark and provides flexibility to move quickly to more remote or more face-to-face teaching depending on circumstances.

In Trinity Term, we were able to offer an online supported alternative within our existing IT infrastructure for most teaching scenarios. With this experience, and more time to prepare, we are in a position to design and deliver an outstanding academic experience to our students in the coming academic year.

Inclusive teaching involves recognising and minimising the barriers that hinder students’ learning and participation. Flexible learning is about accommodating students’ needs for when, where and how they study. We will need to adapt our processes and practices so that all students feel they belong and can achieve, wherever and whenever they are able to study.

This Teaching Remotely page builds on the recommendations and resources we provided in Trinity Term for the move to remote teaching and will help you plan your teaching for the 20/21 academic year in spite of disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
