Tuition strategy

This module provides a range of online learning events and online tutorials. Although not compulsory, tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain a link to a considerable number of photographs and some diagrams. Most are illustrative. A small number of these are an important part of the study of this module. We provide descriptions for all essential figures.

Finding information

You will be required to search for, and make use of, third-party material online. We can provide alternatives for required/assessed research material to enable you to meet the learning outcomes of the module.


This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system; interactive computer-marked assignments completed online; and an End-of-Module Tutor-Marked Assignment (emTMA).


You’ll receive feedback from your tutor on your submitted Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs). This will help you to learn from your TMA performance. You should refer to it to help you prepare for your next assignment as it will provide direct guidance on what to address in order to improve.


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.
