This is a metacourse - a parent course to which all the Theme's teaching course belong as 'child' courses. It provides an administrative area and mailing list for this Theme within the Graduate School. Anyone who is a participant of at least one of the child courses (in any role - lecturer, student or undergraduate student) will automatically be a participant in the metacourse. Extra members can be added by the courses office and by existing lecturers provided they have editing status.
Files can be uploaded to this area to be shared by Theme members. The maximum file size is 20MB.
Some Themes will find many uses for their metacourse area but others may rarely use it. Other metacourses can be created outside the Graduate School if required. Please contact SUPA Central to have new areas created.
Every participant in the metacourse is subscribed to the News Forum below making it the ideal place to post important messages that need to reach every member of the Theme in a Graduate School context. Editing lecturers can create as many other forums as they wish for other discussions.
