Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
All LOs will involve the use of traditional lecture and tutorial methods. LO1, LO2 and LO3 will be supported by the use of specific device discussion topic. Software tools will be employed to support the design of and implementation of circuits and systems developed in LO2, LO4, LO5. Case studies will be used to relate theoretical idea to real systems in LO1 LO3 and LO5

Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills
The ability of students to relate theory to real practise enhances their employability. The use of modern design software involves high levels of numeracy, problem solving and comprehension, all of which will enhance the employability of students on this module. The use of background research and its implementation in the design process require students to be motivated and self reliant.


Formative Assessment:
Throughout the module there will be case study sessions( LO4 and LO5) and tutorial discussions (LO1, LO2, LO3) where a students progress and engagement can be monitored

Summative Assessment:
The main assessment will be a formal examination covering all LOs. A written assignment based on the design and implementation of an electronic system will further examine the higher cognitive levels required in LO2, LO4 and LO5. .
