Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching Methods
This module is taught through a series of practical laboratories, lectures, seminars and tutorials.
Examples of digital media from various sources (television, film and video) will be critically evaluated in order to inform the design of the final animations
Practical skills and techniques will be taught through practical demonstrations and tutorials. These lectures and demonstrations will be digitally recorded for viewing via the internet for the benefit of distance learning students. The learning and teaching methods are designed to ensure that the knowledge and competencies required are achieved in order to satisfy Learning Outcomes 1 to 6.

Embedding of Employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
Employability, PDP and Scholarship skills are directly embedded in the module. The ability to create models digitally is a core skill of the Architectural Technologist. The use of 3D modelling as a design tool will enhance the students ability to contribute to the design process. Additionally the ability to create effective digital presentations will enhance the employability of the student.

Assessment
Formative assessment is provided as written feedback on the digital presentations and orally after the peer to peer presentations. Summative assessment is on the basis of the content and quality of the two digital presentations.
Presentation 1 (LO's 1, 2, 3 & 6)
Presentation 2 (LO's 1,2,3, 4, 5 & 6)

Research/Teaching Linkages
This module has strong links to the Building Performance Centre. Examples will be drawn from research and consultancy activities of the centre.

Supporting Equality & Diversity
The module is also available on a Virtual Learning Environment making it more accessible to non UK students as they can work through the lecture material at their own pace.

Internationalisation
Throughout the module material will be drawn from a variety of cultures from around the world.

Formative Assessment:
The University is currently undertaking work to improve the quality of information provided on methods of assessment and feedback.
