Attending your online sessions
This page is specifically for Level 4 students who will be attending PAL sessions. Here, you can see information on attending your sessions, any rules that your PAL Leader might suggest and making the most out of your sessions
If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact your PAL Leader, or PAL@bournemouth.ac.uk! For more guidance on using Teams as a platform and tutorial advice, please see here: Using MS Teams
The PAL Central Team are currently adding Llevel 4 students to both their departmental teams, and their correct seminar group/private channel within the team.
Once you are added, you will receive an email notification from 'firstname.lastname@example.org', saying that you've been added to a team. When you open Microsoft Teams either through the web/app (See 'Using Microsoft Teams' section on this page), or via the link in your notification email, you'll be asked to log in. Use your university email address and password for this, as you would to log in to your outlook inbox. Once logged in, you will be able to see only the seminar group that you are a member of. This private channel will be listed to the left of the screen, and will be titled with your timetabled PAL seminar group code, along with the name of your PAL Leader.
It is important that your PAL Leader hosts your sessions in your private channel, rather than the entire team for your department!
Please contact PAL@bournemouth.ac.uk if you have any problems with accessing your sessions! We are working to get your teams, channels, and fellow seminar members set up quickly.
For a step-by-step pictographic guide on the instructions on how to access your session, please see the following screenshots:
An important piece of advice for you as a Level 4 student, is the value of engaging with your session. When both the PAL Leader, and the Level 4 students mutually engage with PAL, it is a fun and beneficial experience for all.
As part of this, please don't hesitate to give your PAL Leader any feedback such as things that you enjoyed, or didn't enjoy (but be appropriate about it!), as well as suggestions for sessions you'd find useful.
PAL is student-led, so whilst your PAL Leader might have some session plans for when they get few suggestions, it is up to you to tell them what you want!
