Learning to Learn Online in Trinity

Welcome to ‘Learning to Learn Online in Trinity'.

This online module is designed to support undergraduate and postgraduate students to manage their learning and assessment in an online environment. The objective of the module is to provide relevant resources and support that students may need to adapt to in a hybrid learning environment.

Module Structure

A course map and glossary of terms is included at the beginning of the module, to help navigate through the content of the four blocks.

The four blocks are structured as:

  • • Getting started for learning online
  • • Working together online
  • • Creating your study routine
  • • Preparing for assessments (available in September 2020)
  • This module is designed for 'self-study' and module topics, toolkits and resources within it are available for students to use at any time. Each block is about an hour long and will introduce the student to different ways in which they will be learning, communicating, studying and preparing for assessments over the coming months.
