Ensuring successful outcomes for regional students with a mix of online and face-to-face learning
January 13, 2022
A mix of online and face-to-face classes is helping to ensure that students can stay connected with study.
The college had a successful year last year in spite of the challenges the region faced and it looks like this year will be similar. Alison Heagney, Executive Officer of Community College Northern Inland oversees seven Campuses within the region which covers approximately 25% of NSW.
“I am concerned that our students have certainty that we can deliver what we promote as classes during the Omicron wave. We have introduced a policy that asks staff or students to stay away from classes or the office for seven days from the onset of illness or if a close contact has the infection. This is our investment in the well being of our people. When students isolate we will provide them with work to continue and keep connected via Zoom and distance materials."
"As with any business we need to keep moving and we now offer our training in more classes as a mix of online and face-to-face classes to ensure that we can continue. We do prefer to be present and real in our towns and deliver our training in a class or on-site but sometimes we need to make adjustments.”
Students who are isolating and unable to attend classes because of caring responsibilities due to Covid are encouraged to contact their campus coordinator to get access to learning resources that will help them through a short period of non-attendance.
