Postgraduate Programme and Module Handbook 2007-2008 (archived)
The interactive nature of the teaching sessions, with discussion, small group work, individual questioning, student presentations etc provides opportunity for informal formative feedback. Essay titles are introduced early in the module to enable ongoing discussion during the teaching sessions. In addition to contact with the tutor during teaching sessions, tutors can be contacted by phone or email. Since students are required to carry out research into an aspect of their professional practice, a Proposal Proforma is submitted and formative feedback is provided by the Module Convenor. Students are strongly advised to submit an outline (maximum 2 sides of A4) summarising the development of the argument in their essays at least 4 weeks in advance of the submission deadline for written formative feedback prior to the summative assessment.
■ Attendance at all activities marked with this symbol will be monitored. Students who fail to attend these activities, or to complete the summative or formative assessment specified above, will be subject to the procedures defined in the University's General Regulation V, and may be required to leave the University
