Wrexham Glyndwr University strives to provide innovative teaching methods, whilst ensuring that there are no barriers to education. Borne out of these ambitions is the university’s Active Learning Framework (ALF), and a number of the university’s postgraduate courses are delivered either wholly or partly online under the Active Learning Framework.
The ALF is a blended approach to teaching and learning. It is a mode of teaching that combines on-campus, face-to-face teaching with online learning content that can be accessed whenever, wherever.
This blended approach to learning means students can study one of the university’s courses without having to commit to living in Wrexham full-time. It also means that students can study at a time that suits them, and gain their qualification around their other commitments.
The online learning elements are accessed through a Virtual Learning Environment and can take the form of recorded lectures and guest talks, key readings, and quizzes. Students will also have access to discussion boards, where they can interact with course leaders and fellow students.
