Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
This module will be delivered through a combination of lectures, directed online learning and supporting tutorials. Tutorial classes will include interactive sessions during which students work in small groups to undertake problem-solving exercises (LO1 - 3). Laboratory classes will support thematic learning (LO4-5).

Formative Assessment:
Formative assessment occurs in tutorial sessions and laboratory sessions when students will have the opportunity to discuss and compare their solutions/data with their peers, and with model answers. Online self-assessments will be provided to help students engage with the theory content of the module and to provide feed forward for summative assessments.

Summative Assessment:
In weeks 3,5,7,9 & 11 Students will engage in a series of 1 hour online assessments which will be used primarily to determine achievement of LO 4-5, and to ensure completion of directed online activities. At least 3 of these will be designed in partnership with students. A final summative assessment will assess LO1-3.
