Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs:

Classes are in tutorial form and are highly interactive in nature. In the course of completing the project the students will use the resources of the internet, the French community at Edinburgh Napier University, partner universities in France and library resources to produce a report on an agreed topic relating broadly to travelling, studying or working in France. The structure and timetable for the research and the roles in the groups will be agreed in advance with the lecturer, whose role will be chiefly that of facilitator. The findings of the project will be presented orally and in writing.

embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills:

The skills embedded in this module include: teamwork; research skills; time management; presentation skills

assessment (formative and summative);

Formative assessment is given in each class and on the deadlines agreed by the project team. Summative assessments are in the form of a presentation, an essay and summary of a text followed by a discussion.
