Learning and teaching approach This programme is delivered with a variety of learning and teaching approaches. For all modules, theory lectures are delivered that aim to deliver the core content and provide the underpinning knowledge. To complement the theory lectures, students have group seminars and practical workshop sessions that are used to reinforce concepts delivered theoretically. Sessions may be delivered in person or using remote platforms. The teaching methods focus on facilitating a student-centred approach to enhance the independent learning that takes place outside of the classroom. What is the contact time? Contact time includes approximately 12 hours a week to include lectures, seminars, practical workshops, and tutorials. Students are also expected to carry out a significant amount of independent study in addition to contact time (approximately 25-30 hours a week). Independent study includes reading around the subject, preparing for tutorials and seminars, completing module assessment tasks and preparation for presentations and submission of module assessment tasks; forming an essential part of a student’s learning journey.

Assessment method

Students are assessed through a variety of methods including sketchbook development, research, case studies, essays, presentations and portfolios of work. Students also participate in critiques enabling them to explain their design thinking along with reasons and factors which shaped it, this useful formative assessment strategy informs the development of work in progress. Opportunities for feedback on assessments are available prior to the final submission to support student development and achievement. Staff aim to return assessed work within a 15 working day timeframe (not including holidays) in order that students can most benefit from their feedback.
