Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to: develop your practical and critical listening skills and your abilities in score reading, production and post-production. Your aural skills will be developed through the regular use of a software-based training package.
The learning and teaching methods include:
- One-hour or two-hour lectures each week
- One hour per week aural training software to be used as tracked self study
- Workshops to include session observation
- Guided reading/listening
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.
