Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching Methods (including their alignment to Learning Outcomes)

Teaching and learning will take place through lectures, practical workshops, and seminars for the whole class on one day per week (LOs 1,2,). There will be workshops to develop and extend technical skills (LO 2). Students will also work in groups. Students will be expected to collaborate successfully with fellow students and contribute to the joint development of the group's work as well as their individual learning (LO 3, 4). Research, writing and analytical skills will be developed through the written work (LO 3, 5).

Formative Assessment:
There will be a number of formative assessments during the module. These will include individual Avid editing projects during workshops and group camera skills exercises in studio and on location (Los 1 - 3). You will then work together in student production teams towards the creation of a multi-camera studio production (LOs 1 - 4). In each of these cases you will receive formative feedback at the end of each project.

Summative Assessment:
There will be three summative assessments. The individual practice based assessment (30%) will be two 'pieces to camera' researched, written and performed by each student. These must be approximately 2 minutes in duration and will be different programme genres (LO1, 3). The second assessment will be focused on a group studio programme. This will be an individual assessment based on your production role in the programme (30%). For this assessment, you will write an account of the production role you had on the day. It will demonstrate a range of technical skills and competencies.
