Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Each taught input uses a variety of resources to foster student engagement including in class exercises and group discussions. A reflective and critical approach to the subject matter is maintained through fostering empirically grounded theoretical approaches which can also draw on students own experience.

Formative Assessment:
Throughout the module students are encouraged to discuss key themes and issues within the tutorial exercises to gauge their comprehension of the subject matter and to facilitate them in the practice of public speaking.

Students are offered tutor support in the form of guidance before their essays and a dedicated exam revision class. They are also given written and oral feedback on their coursework essays which they can then reflect on and utilise in preparation for the final examination.

Summative Assessment:
Summative assessment takes the form of a written essay of 2500 words on topics covered in the first half of the module.
There is also a final centrally timetabled examination of 2 hour duration on topics covered in the second half of the module.
