Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
Formal lectures, hands-on practical tutorials and residential field course continuously assessed. The field course is of 1 weeks duration and is used to draw together all of the skills obtained during the module in a practical "real-life" scenario.

Embedding of employability/ PDP/ scholarship skills
Module content is developed in consultation with employers.
Working on Survey Camp encourages teamwork within the individual group and coordination of efforts with other groups. Daily presentation of results.

Assessment (formative and summative)
Students are assessed on elements of the module as it progresses with timely feedback given on performance. Assessments length/volume will be announced on survey camp.

Research/ teaching linkages
All logging, computing and logging software developed by the module leader specifically for the delivery of this module
Supporting equality and diversity
Lecturer and technician support is on hand throughout the module. Consideration will be given to alternative work on a case by case basis for students with special needs.

Internationalisation
The module follows current UK practices. International students are encouraged to contribute their own experiences wherever this may differ from UK practice.

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