Rise Self Study Packs: Staff Toolkit

Get Started
Rise is a unique feature of the Manchester Met offer which enables students to gain recognition and credit for engaging with extra-curricula learning. We provide a range of opportunities for students to step out of their subjects and into interdisciplinary topics and themes.
Our Self Study Packs are one significant feature of that offer. They are a catalogue of ‘micro-courses’; independent study packages containing text, video and audio which can be accessed at any time on a self-enrolment basis and completed at whatever pace is most appropriate to the learner. We create Self Study Packs as open educational resources and make them available to anyone who wants to explore them.
Rise works on a points basis; when participants acquire 300 points, they can apply for transcript recognition, and potentially classificatory credits towards their course. Our Self Study Packs award 40 points towards this.
We have also designed our Self Study Packs so that they can be authored by anyone; staff, students or external partners. The purpose of this course is to introduce potential authors to the approach we take and to guide them through the process of proposal, development and delivery of a Self Study Pack.
