In 2016, UTS introduced a new learning calendar. The new learning calendar was designed to create a platform for the future where:
- Students have the option of a more flexible study pattern across three teaching periods;
- The objectives of learning.futures are optimised;
- Academic staff members have greater flexibility in balancing teaching and research objectives; and
- Organisational sustainability is supported by expanding our capacity, maximising our available space year-round to enable a major expansion of our academic workforce.
As part of the new learning calendar, Week One activities are designed to enable students to begin their new subjects with interesting online and face-to-face activities that support them to make a good start.
Below are some case studies outlining innovative approaches to Week One activities.
