Mode of study

Much of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images; audio/video clips of 1–25 minutes (all with transcripts); diagrams; interactive media; animations; and multiple-choice self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. We provide printed materials for some module content, with the exception of interactive activities.

Tuition strategy

This module provides a range of learning events, online tutorials and face-to-face tutorials. Each face-to-face learning event offers an online (or other) alternative. Although not compulsory, tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain a considerable number of diagrams, graphs and photographs. Reading and interpreting these is an important part of the study of this module. We provide descriptions for all essential figures.

Assessment

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

Feedback

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.

Schedule

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.
