The teaching and learning methods used are appropriate to a culturally diverse student population.

Teaching and learning methods
In this module, three main learning methods are used:  (1) contact teaching; (2) directed learning; and (3) self-directed learning. A proportion of the module hours provide the opportunity for teaching contact between students and experts (facilitators and industry partners). Contact teaching takes the following forms: interactive lectures, tutorials, workshops, industry visits. Various forms of directed learning are used, such as, group assignment and individual assignment. Self-directed learning is also an important part of this module and students are encouraged to develop the ability to learn on their own and thus to take more responsibility for setting the objectives of their study work. Students should put emphasis on text review and vigorous reflection.

The number of learning hours (243) is divided as follows:

  • 144-hours of contact teaching and directed learning
  • 98-hours of self-directed
  • The own learning assessment 1 h
