Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
The module follows a block lecturing approach, where the lectures are delivered by the Module Leader or Edinburgh Napier colleague in a four or five day block near the beginning of the trimester, practicals and tutorials are delivered by a local tutor on a weekly basis thereafter. Additionally the Edinburgh Napier Module Leader will support the students in their online and directed learning tasks. The Local Tutor works to a Tutor Guide produced by the Module Leader, who also provides the students with their own Study Guide and slides on CD and VLE. Email communication between the Programme Team in Hong Kong, the local tutor and the Module Leader ensure that the tutor’s queries are resolved and that the module is delivered in the manner recommended by the Module Leader.
A blended learning philosophy is adopted on the module, where the students are required to enhance their independent learner skills through an active approach to learning. The work to be undertaken is contained within a series of learning units. Each learning unit contains face-to-face activities of lectures and tutorials where the main subject themes are taught (LOs 1,2,3,4, and 5). In addition within each learning module students will be ask to complete a range directed learning activities which are based on active learning and encourage students to develop as independent learners (Los 1,2,3,4 and 5).
