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, and/or working together with fellow learners on a project/task.
You may be required to search for, and make use of, third party material online, and this is assessed. Alternatives for required/assessed research material can be provided to enable you to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module.
DD308 requires you to search online for academic journal articles and non-academic sources such as newspaper articles as part of your preparation for your independent essay at the end of the module. You will be provided with guidance about how to use the online Open University library to locate these sources.
This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system, one Interactive Computer- Marked Assignment (iCMA) completed online, and an End-of-Module Assessment (EMA) 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. Please contact your tutor to discuss any concerns you have about this aspect of your learning.
