Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
You will be provided with responsive, engaging and interactive online learning materials which will include a general introduction to the topic, how to study the module online, together with core academic theory relating to the topic. You will also be directed to a variety of electronic sources including e-books, e-journals and other web-based resources, to support your learning. A mix of activities such as reflective exercises, case studies and self-assessment questions (with diagnostic feedback) for each unit will help to engage you in the learning process, and the online materials will encourage you to reflect on your own experiences and learning. You will also be encouraged to form your own independent groups and to interact via the VLE through discussion forums.

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
The online content will facilitate the development of key skills such as reflective learning and critical thinking. Scholarship skills are developed through completion of the assessment

Research / teaching linkages
Research skills are developed in the preparation of materials for the online discussions where you will be required to source, analyse and present information. This is reinforced through the summative assessments in which the report draws on your information retrieval and analysis skills.

Supporting equality and diversity
Materials will be available through the VLE and you can format these in a style that best matches your needs. Where additional special needs support is required this will be organised on an individual basis with the student concerned.

Internationalisation

Formative Assessment:
Self-assessment questions, case studies and progress tests at the end of each unit provide formative assessment.
