Learning & Teaching

Lectures

Lectures are a major part of the teaching strategy for the programme. Lectures are an effective way of delivering core material and establishing a framework for a module against which other material can be set.

Modular Subject Tutorials

Tutorials are meetings of a student or group of students with a lecturer or lecturers and are used in two ways within the programme:

• expanding upon material covered in lectures through an enquiry-driven problem solving approach

• remedial work to overcome any deficiencies in a student’s background knowledge.

Seminars

Seminars involve a student or students presenting previously prepared work to peers and a lecturer. This strategy is used to extend specific theoretical or practical concepts as well as introducing problem solving exercises. Seminars are used in most modules and provide students with valuable experience in presentational skills as well as providing staff with a method of assessing student-centred learning.

Practical Workshops

In these classes students are able to practise and refine their skills in a supportive environment where they can receive feedback from a member of academic staff. Practical workshops represent a valuable transition between theory and the workplace.

Case Studies

Case studies are a teaching and learning strategy, employed in a range of modules; they also are a useful assessment tool. Students are presented with or asked to develop real or simulated complex problems which they are required to analyse in detail and then synthesise/present their own solution in writing or orally.

Employability & Careers​

This programme is broad in scope, enabling a student to enhance their existing skills in anticipation of meeting the increasing commercial demand for advanced computing graduates.​​​
