Assessment and Contact Hours

Changes to delivery in 2020/21.

Please note that the delivery of the module will be adapted as a result of the ongoing pandemic and move to a blended-learning model (a mixture of online and face to face teaching).

The theme and content of the lectures will not change, but the lectures will be delivered asynchronously. Each lecture theme will be broken down into shorter sections. Lectures will have captions to make them more accessible and many will be supported with powerpoint slides or other media.

Seminars will be delivered both face-to-face and online on. The mode of delivery will rotate: face-to-face one week, online the other.
