Teaching and Learning Strategies

The teaching and learning strategy is based on the use of both direct verbal and visual instruction (theory lectures, presentations and practical and project briefings), and aural learning by giving instruction and guidance during project work and assignments. 

Group interaction and enquiry-based learning is encouraged during project work using group feedback to review progress and facilitate group discussion and collaboration.

The learning is also supplemented by independent learning with library, on-line and digital resources available for learners to research publications and knowledge for assignments, project work and to complement theory from lectures.

This strategy is accommodated by providing four hours per week of theory lectures
