Attending DCU 2020/21: Everything Staff Need To Know

Teaching Supports

This is DCU

The teaching experience for 2020/2021 will be different from previous years at DCU. The threat posed to public health by the coronavirus pandemic has led to universities across the globe having to address how they can continue teaching while keeping their staff and students safe.  In many cases, lectures will be delivered remotely while students will attend campus in smaller groups for face-to-face sessions, tutorials and practicals/laboratory work.

Lecturers should also be prepared for the possibility that there could be temporary suspension of on-campus teaching for a period if there are outbreaks of COVID-19.  If this arises, we will continue teaching online, and re-open as soon as the public health situation allows.

Our online learning platform Loop will be your main 'go to' for everything related to your course. Log in using your DCU email address and password.

Teaching Online - Resource Bank

This website provides links to a number of useful resources on teaching online that have been selected to support institutions and individual educators to respond to the Covid-19 health crisis.

More specifically, the Resource Bank aims to share the advice of experienced online educators from around the world to help higher education institutions harness the potential of online distance education as an important part of continuity planning for these challenging times. Our National Institute for Digital Learning team is updating the site on a regular basis.
