All core modules will be focused around class discussions, developing analytical and problem-solving skills and the ability to find and manage information.

Assessment is based on clearly specified criteria and uses a variety of techniques to ensure learning outcomes are met. Writing skills are tested via essays, article reviews, reports and a series of formative reflexive exercises that will form the basis of 'patchwork texts' and e-Portfolios. Much of your assessments will be written, but your interpersonal communication skills will also be developed via individual and group presentations.
