A summer teaching session must be a minimum of 6 weeks in duration. A course offered in such a period of delivery constitutes a course offered in intensive mode.
Delivery is underpinned by sound pedagogical principles.
The accredited course syllabus is adhered to.
Instructional (class- or Laboratory-based) hours (cumulatively – total course learning hours) are met.
The delivery pattern allows for sufficient time for:
Achievement of course learning outcomes.
Given the considerations listed in (E) above, some courses would not be suitable for an intensive mode of delivery, for example internships and major student projects.
The students sit the same assessment as their counterparts who do not study the course in a summer course.
Students are fully informed of any modifications to course/program delivery that may have been made.
All student services such as Learning resources access and support, IT laboratories and IT support, catering, health services are available during the intensive delivery period.
The opportunities for, and the duration of, course delivery during summers must take account of the need for student reflection on course learning materials and full understanding of topics, supported by research and independent studies.
