Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
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. Practical lab work is used to highlight the principles of fluid flow.
Embedding of employability/ PDP/ scholarship skills
Module content is developed in consultation with employers.
Communication and report-writing skills are developed through the continuous assessment component
Research/ teaching linkages
Staff undertake scholarly and research activities on water resources engineering subjects.
Relevant research findings are delivered within the module.

Formative Assessment:
Formative and summative assessment is carried out through the coursework and end of module examination.

Summative Assessment:
Formative and summative assessment is carried out through the coursework and end of module examination.
