Teaching and assessment
Support from your tutor
Attendance at Learning events e.g. tutorials/ online sessions is not compulsory, but your ability to work with your peers and to complete the summative assessment will be severely compromised if you do not participate in them.
From the outset, you will be able to obtain peer and tutor feedback on your reasoning relating to topic choice from your contributions to the Tutor Group Forum and OpenStudio, and by participating in the first learning event. All these things are essential to help you succeed and work towards submission of the first assessment.
You will be required to book a one-to-one synchronous online meeting with the tutor, and you will have the option of booking a second meeting if you wish.
You should use the learning events to receive tutor and peer feedback on your ideas and work, to reflect on your progress, and to offer your constructive feedback on your peers’ ideas and work. Your reflection on these experiences will form an important part of the summative assessment for this module.
