Working with others
You’ll be required to work with other students, but we will not assess this work. This includes looking at, and commenting on, others’ work; reflecting on others’ comments on your work; and/or working together with fellow learners on a task.
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 essential figures.
W111 uses different note taking and mind mapping tools. Some of these will present information, others will be offered for your use when engaging with activities to develop an awareness for your own learning style.
Specialist reading material
In this module, you’ll be working with specialist reading material such as case reports and legislation which will be presented online.
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.
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.
