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.

Students will document their progress throughout the year in a journal or blog.

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to: develop production skills in styles of TV and film making. It will also provide opportunities for discussion and debate. Some two-hour plenary session at the beginning of the semester. Seminar later in term where each student will give a presentation on their project topic. Regular tutorials and group feedback sessions
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.
