Teaching and Learning

The overall approach in the course to teaching and learning is a student-centred one, which is designed to encourage students to take increasing responsibility for their own learning and development as the programme progresses. • The requisite competencies in this programme are developed through lectures, tutorials, coursework (assignments, individual projects, group projects, essays, reports, presentations, posters and dissertation) self-study, a business project and the research project. The laboratory based practical components of the programme (structured classes and research project), the work in the pilot plants, the industrial visits and placement serve to reinforce the development of subject-specific skills. The practical component of the programme, working in the pilot maltings, brewery and distillery reinforces the theory and promotes group working as a member of a small team. • Personal abilities are developed throughout the programme by small-group interactions, project work and seminars. • Approaches to teaching and learning are reviewed annually and developed appropriately in response to feedback from students, staff, external examiners and examination results etc. • Specific details relating to teaching and learning are provided in the relevant course descriptors.

Assessment

The assessment policy for the programme incorporates a range of assessment types. Formative tests and other assignments are scheduled to provide feedback on performance and are used to inform further development. Coursework (continuous assessment) during courses and summative assessment at the conclusion of courses both contribute to the overall assessment and are used to measure the achievement in specified learning outcomes.
