Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to Los:
The approach adopted shall be of a participative nature with lectures and tutorials followed with
experimentation and case studies.

Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills:
Guest lectures by industry and local government personnel shall be organised.

Assessment (formative and summative):
Course work shall form the basis for: (i) PDP and (ii) scholarship.
The formative assessment will be an exercise on thermal energy design for a building enclosure. This will also include an assessment of thermal comfort for that design. A 2,500 word report encompassing technical analysis and Carbon foot print of the above design shall be expected.

Supporting equality and diversity
The nature of the delivery of the various components that make up this module provides scope for engaging students in the module content in ways which can be varied to accommodate a wide range of needs. Particular attention will be given to students with specific special needs, on an individual basis, to ensure that they receive an equivalent experience.

Research/ teaching linkages:
Strong links with renewable energy research currently underway at Napier shall be maintained.

Internationalisation:
Throughout lectures and tutorials examples shall be used to support equality, diversity and
internationalisation.

Formative Assessment:
The University is currently undertaking work to improve the quality of information provided on methods of assessment and feedback. Please refer to the section on Learning and Teaching Approaches above for further information about this module’s learning, teaching and assessment practices, including formative and summative approaches.

Summative Assessment:
The University is currently undertaking work to improve the quality of information provided on methods of assessment and feedback. Please refer to the section on Learning and Teaching Approaches above for further information about this module’s learning, teaching and assessment practices, including formative and summative approaches.

Description of module content:

Dynamic building thermal and lighting energy load calculations. Provision of sustainable energy solutions for buildings. Noise isolation and noise reduction. The module will introduce conventional as well as more modern, energy efficient design practice. The three 'e's - economy, energy and environmental impact of building services shall be addressed throughout.

Learning Outcomes for module:

On completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: assess comfort related environmental factors in a building subject to dynamic influences;
LO2: design energy efficient and environmentally acceptable building services systems for buildings;
LO3: apply more advanced methods of energy efficient lighting design;
LO4: assess more advanced materials, components and systems for energy efficient building, including their
environmental impact;
LO5: provide sustainable energy solutions for buildings.
