Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Teaching and learning will take place through practical workshops and group discussions one day per week (LOs 1,2,). There will be sessions to develop and extend technical skills in the studio (LO 2). Students will be expected to collaborate successfully with each other and students on other programmes and contribute to the joint development of the group's work as well as their individual learning (LOs 3, 4). Research, critical reflection and analytical skills will be developed through the written work (LOs 3, 4).

Formative Assessment:
There will be a number of formative assessments during the module. These will include multi-camera and lighting exercises in the studio and on location (LOs 1 - 2). In each of these cases students will receive formative feedback at the end of each project. There will also be various studio production days to give student practical experiences to reflect on (LOs 3,4).

Summative Assessment:
There will be two summative assessments. The first assessment will be a studio programme (LOs 1 - 3) This will be an group assessment based on teamwork, group communication and the production and technical quality of the programme itself (60%). The second assessment is a reflective production log (LO, 4). Here students should analyse the production process and put the final output within the context of the industry itself.
