Course Delivery

Online Independent Study 

Material will be available online via Moodle, and students will be able to access the content which will include recorded lectures, podcasts and articles, and study in their own time, although there is some expectation that they aim to keep up to date on a weekly basis. (ie that tasks for week 1 are completed sometime within week 1) 

This short course requires that the student can allocate 3 hours per week to their study, but there is no requirement to be online at a specific time. 


Students will be required to complete an online discussion forum on each weekly topic. The forums will enable students to reflect and demonstrate their learning. The expectation for the total word count is 1,000 words.

There will be clear guidance given to students regarding student expectation and assessments.  Students will not be expected to use Harvard referencing, but will need to list their sources of information.  The assessments will be 8 x 250 word contributions to a discussion forum, and will involve either opinion based, research based or experience based tasks related to the weekly content.   It is advised that students complete one forum each week, and it should not extend their study time per week by more than 30 minutes.


10 credits.
