This course emphasizes active learning and facilitative teaching. It is an interactive course and so you will work in small groups and receive frequent and informal feedback. It encourages a participative approach to learning including collaborative learning and peer review.
Assessment plays a key role in ensuring that you develop and demonstrate the required knowledge and skills to complete your programme. Each assessment is written so that you can show that you have achieved the learning outcomes for the module and for the whole programme.
The range, type and timing of assessment have been carefully chosen to enable you to become independent and reflective learners. Modules are assessed either by coursework and / or examination and full details are given in the module descriptors.
