Students taking this module will need some computer literacy skills, particularly with respect to Microsoft Word, Powerpoint and Microsoft Excel software programmes. Because of this taking a module such as RDEV 10020 Information Skills, or an equivalent would be useful in advance of taking this module.

• Feedback individually to students, on an activity or draft prior to summative assessment
• Group/class feedback, post-assessment
• Peer review activities
• Self-assessment activities
Feedback is a key tool for successful learning. Post -assessment feedback ( where no further similar assessment is scheduled) will take the form of grades. Students may make an appointment to discuss assessment grades at a time convenient to bth Module Co-ordinator and the student. More important, however is feed-forward insights on your learning. This module has a scheduled series of low-stakes in-class assessments designed to promote team building and develop numeracy and writing skills. Feedback will be given during the session and prior to completing the next task so that the feedback can feed forward to inform improved performance in subsequent tasks. These tasks then build to a similar higher-stakes individual task to assess your individual competency later in the module. Feedback will take the form of description of the quality of the submission and suggestions of areas in which improvements can be made. Component grades will not be disemminated .
