Teaching will be delivered at a distance by use of WebCT with appropriate guidance for obtaining information from other sources such as the internet, books and journals. The process of teaching and learning will be in two stages. The first stage will be used to give the student a broad base of knowledge. The second stage will then be used to apply this knowledge base to specific situations. There will be a learning contract for the second stage which will specify how the knowledge is to be applied.
The module will be assessed by means of a portfolio of evidence designed to demonstrate the student's fulfilment of an individually negotiated learning contract for the module. The learning contract requires the students to make use of and develop previously gained knowledge in the portfolio of evidence. The student is also required to sort relevant from irrelevant information for inclusion in the portfolio.
