Delivery and Assessment
Courses are delivered through a variety of methods on- and off-campus, including lectures, tutorials, demonstrations and simulations, case studies, practical work (fieldwork, workshop, laboratory activities) and project development. Students are expected to work individually, in groups and to undertake self-study.
Course assessment is structured around reports, essays, portfolios, presentations and examinations.
A key element of each programme is the development and assessment of Training Needs Analysis (TNA) competencies. TNA training may be delivered and assessed in academic modules, individual modules or during Department Specific Activities (DSA).
