Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
Laboratory demonstration of the current technologies will allow the student to engage and reflect on the theoretical topic in a practical sense. The tutorial session allows the student to a) practice exam type questions from a directed study schedule whilst at the same time reinforce the theory of the subject and b) participate in seminars, facilitated
by the module leader, on technologically related topics.
Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills;
During the tutorial sessions, the tutor and students will run seminars. The laboratory experience will allow the student access to current technology in a working environment.
to supporting equality and diversity, the module content is available in both hard(paper) and soft(Moodle) formats to ensure availability to all students.

Formative Assessment:
Student understanding and progress will be continually assessed during weekly tutorial sessions through medium of tutorial sheets, group discussions and seminars.

Summative Assessment:
One coursework covering all learning outcomes during week 12 as well as a final exam.
