How this paper will be taught

Edit How this paper will be taught Content

This paper is taught through a series of lectures and studios, and communication with students is facilitated through Moodle.

Regular class attendance and active participation are expected, and the course notes provided are not comprehensive. Additional material will be covered in class, and students are required to work on all content covered.

Students are also expected to allocate significant time to practical work. Merely turning in the first attempt at each assessment item is not acceptable. Instead, students should experiment with the concepts discussed in class to gain a full understanding of the material delivered.

Please note that, as part of the assessment, students may be required to complete an oral examination (viva voce) at a later date.
