Mode of study
Roughly half of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images, audio/video clips, typically 2 to 5 minutes long (occasionally longer) all with transcripts, diagrams, interactive media, animations and multiple choice self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. Printed materials are provided for some/all module content, with the exception of a few interactive activities in the module website.
This module provides a range of learning events: face-to-face tutorials and online tutorials. Each face-to-face learning event offers an online (or other) alternative. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning. If you have any concerns, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can discuss options with you.
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 all figures.
You may be required to search for, and make use of, third party material online. This can include data sources, or bibliographic references. Alternatives for required material can be provided when they prevent you from meeting unrelated Learning Outcomes of the module.
This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system; Interactive Computer- Marked Assignments (iCMAs) completed online, and an Exam that must be taken at an exam centre. 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.
