Mode of study

Much of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are largely composed of pages of text with images, but also contain audio and video clips (all with transcripts/subtitles); diagrams; interactive media; animations; and multiple-choice self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. While most study weeks are studied partly online and partly using printed materials, the final part of the module is studied entirely online.

Tuition strategy

This module provides online tutorial sessions. There will also be online forums where study activities will take place and there will be opportunities to work more closely with your tutor.

Working with others

You’ll be required to work with other students, and we assess this. This includes looking at, and commenting on, others’ ideas and work in online forums and reflecting on others’ comments on your own work.

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain a considerable number of images. Reproductions of key images are available in a zoomable format and we also provide descriptions for all images in the module.

Analysis of images forms an important part of the study of a number of units of this module and is assessed in assignments. Alternative assessment activities are available for students unable to engage with these.

Finding information

You will be required to click through to, search for, and make use of third-party material online, and we assess this. We can provide alternatives for assessed research material to enable you to meet the learning outcomes of the module. Locating content online (such as further reading and images) forms a particularly important part of the independent work you undertake for your end-of-module project.


This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which you must submit online via the OU electronic TMA system and an end-of-module assessment submitted online.



You’ll 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.


We structure all University modules to a set timetable and you’ll need time-management skills to keep your studies on track. We’ll support you in developing these skills.
