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 mostly of 10 to 20 minutes but some maybe longer (all with transcripts/subtitles); 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 downloadable materials for all module content.

Tuition strategy

This module provides a range of learning events, online tutorials and face-to-face tutorials when possible. 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, although we will not assess these. We provide descriptions for all essential figures.

Finding information

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

Assessment

This module has two 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 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

We structure all University modules to a set timetable and you will need time-management skills to keep your studies on track. We’ll support you in developing these skills.
