This paper describes the conversion of a conventional Lecture/Tutorial delivery mode of a final year Construction degree, to a mode comprising short, intensive blocks of Campus based delivery separated by long periods of student directed study. The driving forces behind the conversion are discussed. The developmental procedures are described and an outline of the delivery format is presented. The potential advantages and disadvantages are considered from the student and the deliverers' perspectives. Experiences of delivering the course are given.
