Network learning-computer conferencing
Network learning is the most popular means of study for our organizational psychology students. You can study at a distance via network learning for the following postgraduate courses:
- Occupational Psychology/Organizational Behaviour (MSc) (also offered via evening teaching)
- (also offered via evening teaching)
- Career Management and Counselling (MSc)
This mode of teaching retains all the flexibility of a distance learning programme but avoids the isolation often experienced on conventional distance learning programmes. Find out what our students have to say by watching our video.
The delivery of programmes via computer conferencing enables you to study from anywhere in the world, at any time - from home, from work or on the train. Using our Blackboard conferencing system, you will discuss topics in tutored groups of 12-15. Within a structured three-term teaching year, you can contribute to the conferencing 'discussion' at the times that suit you best. All contributions are stored, and you have the benefit of being able to make reflective and considered contributions, as well as being able to print out everyone's contributions, forming a permanent record of the discussion on a particular topic.
Computer conferencing is combined with specially written subject guides and resource packs of essential reading material and attendance at termly residential weekend workshops.

There are five weekend workshops over the two-year course that all MSc Network Learning students must attend. The workshops are all held on a residential basis and run from late afternoon on Friday through to lunchtime on Sunday: there are evening activities at all the workshops. They are usually held in The Lensbury Hotel and Conference Centre, Teddington. TW11 9NW visit www.lensbury.com.
