Learning and assessment
Formal learning opportunities include interactive lectures, case studies, seminars, studio workshop activities, tutorials and practical demonstrations and presentations.
Most teaching activities take place face-to-face but teaching and learning methods can be adapted to include a combination of synchronous or asynchronous online lectures/tutorials and seminars (synchronous or asynchronous) and workshop events if needed.
Several opportunities are provided for students to engage with industrial experts through activities such as visiting guest lectures and organised site visits.
Summative assessment is mostly by a combination of formal individual/group coursework, architectural portfolio building, presentations, demonstrations, and written examinations depending on the module. These methods of assessment not only assess subject-specific knowledge and skills, but also a suite of transferable skills that provide students with a competitive edge when they graduate.
