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.
