Learning and teaching

The module will be delivered through three workshops on consecutive Saturdays, from 10am to 5pm.

These sessions will consist of a mixture of lectures and group-work. The discussion and group-work will enable the students to think critically and contribute to the debates and topics presented during the lectures. There will also be an opportunity for learning outside of the classroom, facilitated by the university's virtual learning environment, Learning Central.

This course operates as part of the Inside Narratives pathway.

Coursework and assessment

Students will be expected to complete two pieces of assessed work amounting to about 1500 words. Advice and support will be provided for both assignments and you will receive detailed feedback relating to strengths and areas for improvement on both pieces of work.

Library and computing facilities

As a student on this course you are entitled to join and use the University’s library and computing facilities. Find out more about using these facilities.
