TRANSFERABLE SKILLS - 2020/1
Module code: CHE1045
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, and in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information, the University has had to change the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes, together with certain University services and facilities for the academic year 2020/21.
These changes include the implementation of a hybrid teaching approach during 2020/21. Detailed information on all changes is available at: https://www.surrey.ac.uk/coronavirus/course-changes. This webpage sets out information relating to general University changes, and will also direct you to consider additional specific information relating to your chosen programme.
Prior to registering online, you must read this general information and all relevant additional programme specific information. By completing online registration, you acknowledge that you have read such content, and accept all such changes.
This module provides the opportunity to enhance transferable skills including skills necessary for employment and further study
CREAN Carol (Chemistry)
Number of Credits: 15
ECTS Credits: 7.5
Framework: FHEQ Level 4
JACs code: F110
Module cap (Maximum number of students): N/A
Prerequisites / Co-requisites
Indicative content includes:
• use of technology for self-study and communication
• understanding objectives and demands of research by becoming familiar with the work of a PG student and presenting findings by inserting a screencast on e-portfolio
• presenting as part of a group
• participating in electronic Discussion Forums
• becoming familiar with the World of Work by preparation of e portfolio, CV and application letter
|Assessment type||Unit of assessment||Weighting|
|Coursework||Coursework 1 (Scientific Reporting)||10|
|Coursework||Coursework 2 (Screencast based on an interview with a PG student)||30|
|Coursework||Coursework 3 (Writing a scientific article)||30|
|Coursework||Coursework 4 (Curriculum Vitae and application letter)||30|
N/A Re-assessment (if necessary) will be in the same format as the original assessment.
The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate that they have successfully met the learning outcomes of the module (see above).
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of three pieces of coursework:
• Coursework 1 (10 % of the module): Scientific Reportins (LO 1)
• Coursework 2 (30 % of the module): A screencast published on e portfolio based on interview of a PG student (LO 2)
• Coursework 3 (30 % of the module): A Scientific Article using correct formatting (LO 3)
• Coursework 4 (30 % of the module): CV and Application letter (LOs 4, 5)
Formative assessment is provided for outcomes of practice during workshops.
Feedback Feedback is provided orally in each workshop
- enhance study skills including effective use of technological aids (screencasts, discussion forums, e portfolios)
- enhance employability (careers in chemistry, Interview practice, CV and application letters)

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to provide practical support and enhance study skills and employability. The material is delivered in 16 workshops (2 h each). The workshops are interactive, giving the opportunity to try out new technology and become familiar with its effective use.
The learning and teaching methods include: role play, group discussions, IT work, presentation practice etc.
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
