Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Formal lectures and class tutorials are used to deliver content and offer face to face support. Directed study tasks encourage integration of key reading material.
Lectures cover the theory and numerical techniques to 1) analyse the truss and frame structures (LO1, 2); 2) calculate the floor loading for typical floor layout (LO 4). Tutorials cover the application of the theory by solving several practical examples (LO 3) . Tutorials are also designed to improve the computational and programming skills of the students by using interactive demonstrations (LO 1-4).
Embedding of employability/ PDP/ scholarship skills
Module content is developed in consultation with employers and/or professional engineering institutions. Communication and report-writing skills are developed through the continuous assessment component.
Assessment (formative and summative)
Formative and summative assessment takes place through the three courseworks and related
practical/tutorial activities (LO 1-4). Summative assessment takes place in the final examination (LO 1-4),.
Research/ teaching linkages
Staff undertake scholarly and research activities in this area, in particular related consultancy work in the Institute for Sustainable Construction and is reflected in the illustrative materials of this module.
Supporting equality and diversity
All materials are available on Moodle to cater for the diverse student group.
Academic supervision and tutorial support are available each taught week of the module to support students.
Internationalisation
This is a fundamental science module, the content of which transcends national boundaries. An international flavour may be imparted by selective use of illustrative examples, especially those associated with ISC.
