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.
Embedding of employability/ PDP/ scholarship skills
Module content is developed in consultation with employers.
Guest speakers offer the opportunity for networking and development of job search strategy. Communication skills are developed through interactive participation by students in class.
Assessment (formative and summative)
Assessment is carried out through the end of module examination (LOs 1 -6) and a single coursework (LOs 1,2 and 3). During tutorial sessions students undertake a series of graded examples designed to develop a sound understanding of the principles and these are used to gauge progress. Assistance and feedback on performance are integral to this process.
Research/ teaching linkages
Staff undertake scholarly and research activities on structural analysis and design subjects.
Relevant research findings are delivered within the module.
