Mode of study

All of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images, audio/video clips all with transcripts, diagrams, interactive media, animations, multiple choice self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms.

Tuition strategy

This module provides a range of learning events, which are all delivered online. Some of them will also be accessible face-to-face. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.

Working with others

You will be required to work with other students for a collaborative activity. This includes looking at, and commenting on, others’ work, reflecting on others’ comments on your work, and working together with fellow learners on a small project. The output of your groupwork will not be assessed but a reflection on the collaborative activity will constitute a fundamental part of your end of module assessment (EMA).

Practical work

An active participation to the collaborative activity is a fundamental component for the successful completion of this module.

Mathematical and scientific expressions and notations

Very few mathematical and scientific symbols and expressions are used throughout the module.

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain a considerable number of diagrams, graphs and photographs. Reading and interpreting diagrams and graphs and producing examples of them is an important part of the study of this module and is assessed. Figure descriptions are provided for all figures.

Finding information

You may be required to search for, and make use of, third party material online and this is assessed. Alternatives for assessed research material can be provided to enable you to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module. 

Assessment

This module has 3 tutor-marked assignments (TMAs) and an end-of-module assessment, which must be submitted online via the OU eTMA system.

Feedback

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.

Schedule

All University modules are structured according to a set timetable and you will need time-management skills to keep your studies on track. You will be supported in developing these skills.
