Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to: further develop skills and knowledge in fundamental video engineering, allowing later years to build on this knowledge. Practical applications are introduced.
The learning and teaching methods include:
One two-hour lecture per week.
Three three-hour practical workshops on equipment knowledge and operation. Students are split into two groups meeting on alternating weeks (weeks 2 – 7).
Four Two- hour seminars for oral presentations (weeks8-11)
The overall student workload is as follows:
24 hours lectures
6 hours seminars
9 hours workshops
111 hours guided and independent study
The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate
and further develop knowledge and understanding of video engineering principles. It allows written feedback opportunities on a written assignment (Coursework 1). During the workshops and tutorial there will be feedback to assist with the structure of the oral presentation.
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
· Coursework 1 – Practical workshops
· Coursework 2 – Oral seminar
· Exam – Written paper given under exam conditions, 1.5 hours, exam period (addresses learning outcomes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).
There are no formal formative assessment components for this module, but formative feedback will be given to individual students in tutorials and throughout seminar and practical workshops.
Students receive written feedback on their coursework and verbal feedback on their practical work throughout the module, particularly in seminars and workshops.
