Accessibility Statement for Engineering small worlds: micro and nano technologies (T356)
Mode of study
Printed materials are provided for most of the module content, with the exception of some audio and video resources. Online materials are composed of pages of text, third-party external PDF resources, links to external resources, online forums, and online tutorial rooms.
This module provides face-to-face and online tutorials. Each face-to-face tutorial offers an online alternative. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.
Mathematical and scientific expressions and notations
Mathematical and scientific symbols and expressions are used throughout the module. You will be required to use such notation and will be assessed on this.
Diagrams and other visual content
The study materials contain some diagrams, graphs and photographs. Interpreting these is an important part of the study of this module and is assessed. Figure descriptions are not provided.
You may be required to search for, and make use of, third party material online and this may be assessed. Alternatives for required/assessed research material can be provided to enable you to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module.
Specialist reading material
In this module you will be working with specialist reading materials that contain mathematical notation, chemical equations and symbols. These are delivered in printed form and via third-party online resources.
This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system, and an exam that must be taken at an exam centre.
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.
