Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs Teaching methods for will include lectures, interactive sessions, guest lectures on selected topics by industry and research experts, and problem solving tutorials (LO1-3,5). Directed study tasks will encourage integration of key reading material. (LO4,6) A Virtual Learning Environment is utilised and all course materials including notes and lecture presentations can be accessed. (LO1-LO6). Particular emphasis is given to professionalism and ethics, especially with regard to the road safety component of the module. Indicatively, for the road safety audits, the guidelines and principles of the CIHT manual are shown and discussed on a separate unit of the module.
Module content is developed in consultation with employers and the module contents reflects current industry practices with additional international comparisons of guidance and tools. In addition to the skills of understanding the basics of currently used assessment techniques, the ability to critique these techniques will improve students’ employability. (LO1-LO6) Examples used for teaching are derived from transport research and studies, including real project case studies. Research and scholarly activity are also fundamental in your own studies on the module, particularly with reference to the coursework.
Students are asked to undertake scholarly activity and research information from research publications, journals and industry websites to assess current developments in Transport Demand Management and Road Safety (LO1, LO5)

Formative Assessment:
Online Moodle quiz and activities – 1 per unit
Online Moodle forum – on the Transport Demand Management part, students are encouraged to share paradigms of good and bad practices and their suggestions on street design & layouts leading to peer-review activities
Interactive discussions, Q&A sessions in each class, and engaging discussions with experts in the field from both industry and academia

Summative Assessment:
1 coursework report on Transport Demand Measures (LOs 1-4) & 1 coursework report (LOs 5-6) on Road Safety Assessment
