Method of teaching and learning

Lectures will introduce students to the academic content and practical skills which are the subject of the module, while computer practicals will allow students to practice those skills. In addition, students will be expected to devote approximately 13 hours of unsupervised time to work in the computer lab and for private study. Time in the computer lab will be devoted to work on assignments. Private study will provide time for reflection and consideration of lecture material and background reading. Continuous assessment will be used to assess a student progress in the module.
