Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Face to face format using lectures and practical instruction supplemented with VLE resources detailing directed and reflective study. Lectures will be two hours in length and will cover theory, with examples of current practice.
 The lecturer led tutorial sessions will be using instruction materials that the student is required to complete weekly. By completing the successive tasks students will extend the knowledge that they gained from the published texts and lectures, whilst having access to lecturer support. Some of this time will also be set aside for monitoring progress on the coursework. Students will be encouraged to bring in their coursework each week to discuss their progress with their lecturer. 
The remaining time will be devoted to directed study, where a comprehensive list of references will be supplied in order to illustrate advanced practice, these will incorporate videos, books, and websites, which will be updated regularly (all LOs).

Formative Assessment:
Coursework progress will be monitored throughout so that appropriate feedback can be provided during the development process.

Summative Assessment:
The coursework (all LOs) will be practical and involve the creation of audio material in order to confirm that the student has successfully achieved all of the learning outcomes. The submission replicates a format common to film and television production.
