Start of Term Readiness/Induction Materials:
Key guidance for new starts! This section contains materials for new starters, new terms, and new academic years. For Spring Term 2022, we recommend taking a look at our summary blog post.
If you’re new to York and/or our Learning and Teaching systems (like the VLE, Panopto and others), take a look at our induction materials:
Additionally, if you’re teaching staff:
- Ensure that the VLE site for your module is ready for students to use at the start of term
- Look at our pedagogical guidance whenever building teaching and learning materials and activities
If you’re a departmental administrator, before the start of each term:
- Check that your department’s VLE sites are automatically enrolling students
- Check VLE sites exist for any new modules running in the term, and request new ones if not.
