Teaching and Learning Methods
Lectures to orientate students will be given each week during the course of the module.
There will be one-hour weekly seminars, supplemented by student-led discussion on the current topics in a module forum.
Students are expected to give seminar presentations and to participate regularly in the forum discussion which will be closely monitored.
Workload and Assessment
Students will submit two non-assessed 2,000 word essays, in week 7 of both terms.
They will also submit a timed exam-practice essay.
