Queen's Virtual Noticeboard

by Andrew Hayes -

The following message comes from Jonny Bell in his capacity as a Staff Student Community Forum (SSCF) rep. 

Queen's Virtual Noticeboard!
 
As we are not able to access the physical noticeboard at Queen's, we have made a virtual one on Google Classroom. All you need is an email account to access it and follow the link below - this will help those of us not on Facebook!
 
People will be able to post 'notices' on the feed about things that are happening. This will be open to all in the Queen's community; this includes all students, partners and family. Moodle does work well (sometimes) for notices/announcements, but due to the way it works, partners/family members cannot access them. We encourage people to share the link with those in their family if they wish.

Advent Carol Service - readers

by Mark Earey -

Our online end of term service of Carols and Readings for Advent will take place on Monday 14th December at 7.30pm, [CORRECTION - it should say 7.00pm] and all members of the extended Queen's family are invited to join in. If you are planning on joining the Zoom service, and you would be willing to do one of the Bible readings, please could you let me know on: m.earey@queens.ac.uk  

Many thanks.

Onsite Course Delivery (Spring term 2021)

by David Allen -

Dear Students,

We are writing to update you on timetabling and delivery plans for the Spring term (11th Jan -25th Mar 2021), as agreed by the college’s Academic Management Group. This is specifically for those modules which would normally take place on the Queen’s campus and in "face-to-face" mode:

  • In the light of public health advice and guidance, for those modules which would normally be delivered onsite at Queen’s, they will instead run in online/digital mode (continuing therefore our practice in the autumn term). We anticipate that online delivery will continue up to the end of term (25th March), though we will review the situation during the February half-term.  
  • In terms of timetabling of these courses, the timetable for the Spring Term for the modules remains unchanged, and is available at https://queens.commonawards.org/course/view.php?id=79). Please note the following:
    • For first-year modules, these timetable arrangements begin in week 1 (w/b 11th January).
    • For second-year, MA and other modules, these timetable arrangements begin in week 2 (w/b 18th January). A separate week 1 formational programme will be running for second year QDC students.
