Teaching Rationale And Relationship
The module is based on developing skills in the use of two software packages and therefore has a significant element of practical work. Inventor will be taught through directed practical classes (2, 2hr sessions per week). This will introduce the theory (IKO1/2) and allow students to develop their skills (ISO1). The material will use lectures to introduce and demonstrate concepts (IKO3/4) and students will then have the opportunity to their skills (ISO2/3) in the practical sessions.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship
Due to the practical nature of this module, assessment of the intended learning outcomes is most effectively achieved through coursework with one piece of assessed work submitted per software package.
The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are assessed in this way.
