Teaching, learning and assessment methods
The teaching and learning on this module has been designed with an applied focus and takes students from a variety of undergraduate backgrounds and develops a series of critical evaluative skills in relation to topics drawn from criminology, social and forensic psychology and case studies which have real world relevance. Learning and teaching will be delivered online only via virtual learning environment (VLE) and with tutor and peer support provided via marking feedback, module website and forums, as well as direct email support from tutors where appropriate. Forums will be tutor moderated. The assessment strategy has been designed to promote increasing independence from the first tutor-marked assignment, through the development of an independent case study to the final two-component end-of-module assessment.
