Module Organiser:

Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
In line with becoming independent learners students are week-by-week given less fine details and are expected to fill in any necessary gaps themselves (LOs 1, 2, 3 and 4). This culminates in the assessment which assesses an aspect of software development that was not taught in the class. Thus the student must demonstrate their ability to carry out independent learning.

Formative Assessment:
Formative Students will be given practical questions to complete each week. They will get feedback on their progress during their tutorials

Summative Assessment:
Summative Students will complete a large piece of practical coursework towards the end of the module (LOs 1, 2, 3 and 4).
