Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Teaching for this module is in tutorial form and highly interactive. Emphasis is placed on enhancing students' speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. Use of WebCT Vista and other relevant multimedia facilities facilitates practice, revision and independent learning. Students' portfolios will reflect their ability to study independently; they will also contain tutorial assignments.

The development of research, communication and independent learning skills is an integral part of this module's LTA approach. In addition, the module provides the students with the opportunity to become familiar with cultures other than their own, thereby enhancing their international outlook.

Summative assessment takes place in weeks 12/13 (Presentation). The portfolio includes examples of both formative assessment and summative assessment. The assessments are designed to be suitable for students from a range of different backgrounds and first languages. Extra support may be available as appropriate.
