Teaching Methods

Please note that module leaders are reviewing the module teaching and assessment methods for Semester 2 modules, in light of the Covid-19 restrictions. There may also be a few further changes to Semester 1 modules. Final information will be available by the end of August 2020 in for Semester 1 modules and the end of October 2020 for Semester 2 modules.

Teaching Rationale And Relationship

The module will consist of online lecture recordings and guided study materials with a mixture of in-person and synchronous online tutorials to provide structured support for the students' learning. The structured online materials, covering both semesters will define the scope of each of the syllabus topics (IKO1-8).

The independent study time is essential for students to work through the lecture material, in their own time and at their own pace (ISO1-5).

Alternatives will be offered to students unable to be present-in-person due to the prevailing C-19 circumstances.
Students should consult their timetable for up-to-date delivery information.

Assessment Rationale And Relationship

The examination affords students an opportunity to demonstrate knowledge, understanding and possession of subject specific and key skills. The medium also allows students to demonstrate intended learning outcomes across a wide range of topics within the syllabus whilst also demonstrating critical thinking.

The Canvas assignment provides students with an opportunity to demonstrate planning and organisational skills as well as problem solving and numeracy.
