Teaching and Learning Strategy
At the start of the module each student will create a Technology Curriculum Vitae, describing their existing technology knowledge base. This will be used to help match students with an industry project offering suitable training processes, activities and resources to achieve the learning outcomes. Students will manage their own work to complete a technology project with the support of an industry placement supervisor, and a Wintec academic supervisor to further develop the student technology knowledge base.
Learning and Teaching Resource
Activities in this module require students to seek their own readings from the internet, newspapers, magazines and journals. This will be overseen by the module tutor.
