Mode of study
Some of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are mostly composed of pages of text with images and diagrams. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. Printed materials are provided for most module content, with the exception of some of the additional learning and assessment resources.
This module provides a range of learning events: face-to-face tutorials, and day schools. Each face-to-face learning event offers an online alternative. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.
Working with others
You will be required to work with other students and this is assessed. This includes looking at, and commenting on, others’ work, reflecting on others’ comments on your work.
Diagrams and other visual content
The study materials contain a considerable number of diagrams. Reading, interpreting and producing examples of these is an important part of the study of this module and is assessed. Figure descriptions are provided for most figures.
You may be required to search for, and make use of, third party material online and this might be assessed. Alternatives for required/assessed research material can be provided to enable you to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module.
This module has two Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system, and an End-of-Module Assessment submitted online. If you are concerned about any aspects of assessments, please contact us for advice on alternative assessments and support.
You will receive feedback from your tutor on your submitted Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs). This will help you to reflect on your TMA performance. You should refer to it to help you prepare for your next assignment.
