Mode of study

Most of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images, audio/video clips all with transcripts, subtitles and diagram descriptions.  There are interactive multiple choice self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. Two hard-copy textbooks are also provided and can be downloaded.

Tuition strategy

This module provides a range of learning events: face-to-face tutorials (or you can choose to attend the online only equivalent tutorials/day schools). Each face-to-face learning event offers an online (or other) alternative. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning. If you have any concerns, please contact us as soon as possible so that we can discuss options with you. You will also have an opportunity to have three, one-to-one online meetings with your tutor. These meetings will be identified at key points and you will be contacted in advance to agree a mutual time and day. They will take place online and will provide an opportunity for you to discuss with your tutor any problems and support you may need.

Working with others

There is no assessed group work. However, group activities may be undertaken during learning events.

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain diagrams and pictures. Descriptions will be provided and may be screen readable.

Finding information

You may be required to search for, and make use of, third party material online. Full guidance will be provided by your tutor and discussed during the one-to-one online meetings.


This module has four Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system and an End-of-Module Assessment (EMA).


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.


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.
