*Postgraduate online learning at SMBC
At SMBC we believe in Christian community and the importance of learning from each other. Our approach to online teaching and learning is highly interactive. There are a range of different interactive activities including collaborative reading, discussion, peer feedback, creative presentations and the use of a number of different interactive apps. Lecturers present material through written or audio-visual presentations that can be read or watched at times that are convenient for each participant. There are no set weekly times for meeting. Lecturers may occasionally arrange a video conference at a time that suits most participants.
One of the most important things for successful online study is to set aside dedicated time each week and to be disciplined in keeping up-to-date. We advise setting aside approximately 5 hours per week for reading and 3 hours each week to work through the activities online. Extra time should also be set aside for each assessment, budgeting approximately 12 hours for each 1000 words.
