Teaching and learning

Reading will be sent to all students as PDFs during the course, to help you ground your learning in current material. Video teaching with examples will be followed by Zoom online discussions. If you wish to take the practical assessment then you can pay an extra fee for it to be marked.

Assessment option

You can choose to undertake the course with or without assessment. Despite being one of our regular undergraduate modules, only our current students who are already registered with Middlesex University, our validating body, can be awarded academic credits for completing the course.

Dates and format

Students will attend a weekly 50-minute class taking place on Zoom, and a lecture video with reading materials can be accessed at any time during the week.

The online Zoom session is on Fridays 16:10 – 17:00, starting on 11th October until 20th December 2024.
