Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning and teaching methods will include lectures, tutorials and workshops. Lectures and tutorials will provide the framework for understanding the module content using a variety of audio-visual resources, group discussions and practical exercises to foster student engagement. Tutorial tasks will require weekly preparation which will form the basis for class discussion. It is expected that significant independent study and individual field research is done for the module assessment.

Formative Assessment:
Tutorials will incorporate formative assessment and you will receive on going formative feedback as you develop your assessments. The work towards the summative assessment is staggered throughout the course with key milestones to achieve by weeks 8, 9, 10, and 11. This allows for opportunities for formative assessment during each of these periods.

Summative Assessment:
The summative assessment will consist of an independent visual research project comprising of a series of inter-related tasks. You will be required to select a research case study by week 5, conduct independent fieldwork using visual methods in week 8 in your selected urban site, present findings to class in week 10 and submit a 2500 word research report in week 14.
