Teaching Pattern

Directed Project Work and Tutorials equivalent to 80 hours contact time


Project Report: 50%      Project Plan: 20%      Tutor's assessment of project progress work: 30%

The project report documents the project and critically reflects on the outcome, with reference to the project plan. It provides a summative assessment mechanism for the outcome of each project.

The project plan is intended as a formative assessment that requires the student to articulate what they're trying to achieve with their project; identify the project deliverables; and develop a timeline for successful creation / realisation of these deliverables.
