Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to: further develop theory and practice in film and broadcast engineering, using both lectures and workshop sessions the students will become familiar with the TV studio system and the communications associated with it.
The learning and teaching methods include:
One two-hour lecture per week (weeks 1 – 12, with a revision lecture in wk 12)
Four three-hour workshops working with TV studio equipment
Three two-hour seminars
The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate
their technical skills and theoretical understanding of video in film and TV through practical course work that will lead them through the functionality of a TV studio (Coursework). The presentation will help them develop an overview of the technology involved . The exam allows students to demonstrate their technical knowledge and systems applications for broadcast and film.
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
Coursework 1 – 20%, (addresses learning outcomes 1 and 2).
Coursework 2 -group presentation 30%(addressees learning outcomes 1, 2, 3,4,5)
