Modules and Assessment
Teaching and Learning Methods
Whilst lectures, seminars and practical workshops feature strongly in the teaching and learning strategy, we will be making considerable use of alternative methods of delivery and study, particularly online options such as tutor and self-assessment revision tests and formative exercises, power-point and other software-based lecture material, learning portals and hyper-linked resource-materials. Students may expect therefore to participate in a wide variety of learning activities including; live and online projects, presentations and discussion alongside more traditional modes of delivery.
Work Placement and Field Trips
