PAL Academic Course Contact Guide: SciTech Strategy

This is a guide created by the Central PAL Team that provides information and advice on being a PAL Academic Course contact.

Faculty of Science and Technology 

Front loaded approach

Semester 1

  • 10 sessions delivered weekly (weeks 13-22)

Semester 2

  • 3 sessions at ‘key touch-points’:
    • Beginning of semester 2 (suggested week 32)
    • Mid semester (suggested week 37)
    • Pre-exams (suggested week 45)

This framework is with the exception of the department of Computing & Informatics, and the department of Psychology, who have decided to distribute sessions differently within the parameters of their budgets.

As part of this year's strategy, PAL Leaders are allocated an hour session during Induction Week to carry out any welcome activities with their seminar group.
