PROFESSIONAL PORTFOLIO - 2021/2
Module code: PROM005
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic the University has revised its courses to incorporate the ‘Hybrid Learning Experience’ in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information. The University has changed the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes. Further information on the general principles of hybrid learning can be found at: Hybrid learning experience | University of Surrey.
We have updated key module information regarding the pattern of assessment and overall student workload to inform student module choices. We are currently working on bringing remaining published information up to date to reflect current practice during the academic year 2021/22.
This means that some information within the programme and module catalogue will be subject to change. Current students are invited to contact their Programme Leader or Academic Hive with any questions relating to the information available.
This module builds on all the previous programme learning outcomes, in order to ensure that the student achieves a professional level entry into the global creative industries and that they are a self-motivated reflective practitioner with a high level of ability in critical thinking and analysis. They will then complete an extended reflective evaluation of their production and placement roles during Semester 2. Finally they will complete an extended research based essay on a relevant topic of their choice, linked to their professional ambitions, guided by tutor support.

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to expand their learning into the professional context, to increase academic skills whilst meeting the programme’s aims of developing student employability and engaging with contemporary practice.
The learning and teaching methods include:
• Guided learning: online tasks
• Independent study
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.
