Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to:
Engage the students individual research in developing their understanding of current developments in their specialist pathway.
The learning and teaching methods include:
A Module introduction followed by a series of taught sessions and a presentation.
Each pathway will have its own dedicated schedule of seminars and practical sessions. Depending upon the pathway and so the subject matter, these will vary in duration.
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.
