Teaching Rationale And Relationship
Module content is delivered by a leading industry expert in this area that has invested much time and effort in the development of supporting teaching materials (CD and textbook). This module is already available world-wide on a distance learning basis and, therefore, conforms to industry practice and expectations. This primary method of delivery ensures that all knowledge (IKO1 - 4) and skills (ISO1 - 3) outcomes are achieved, but places a clear emphasis on developing the capacity for independent study. The tutorial sessions allow for the planning and organisation of the module and in particular of the assessments, as well as feedback on assessments and other student problems and enquiries.
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners

Assessment Rationale And Relationship

Examination is appropriate for assessing individual knowledge and skills under a time-constrained environment that parallels an industrial environment and requirements. The Graduate Skills Framework entries indicated as 'A' are also assessed in this way.
