Identifying and working towards targets for personal, academic and career development 15. Developing an adaptable, flexible, and effective approach to study and work 16. Understand the need for CPD A Teaching and learning: Lectures, tutorials, laboratory- practical classes and studentcentered intensive workshops are given that are appropriate to

5 the outcomes specified in the taught course specifications. At level one, lectures are intended to supply core principles and information, and tutorials will provide an opportunity for the students to apply these principles through participation in interactive learning. However, as students progress towards more independent learning they will be expected to extend and supplement material by using currently available literature and electronic sources of information. At the final year areas of current research focus will be explained in lectures and student centred learning will establish an in-depth understanding of the topics. Crime scene room supplements specific forensic lectures and labs. B Teaching and learning Intellectual skills are developed through practical workshops, seminar work and coursework assignments. The authorship of an extended independent final year forensic based project encourages teaching and learning activities. C Teaching and learning Subject practical skills are developed in a coordinated and progressive manner throughout the programme. These skills are highlighted in the practical workshops and computer-based sessions. Critical analysis skills are developed throughout the course in both practical-based and class-based scenarios in preparation for the critical evaluation of the literature and generated data in the preparation of the written research thesis. D Teaching and learning Computer, problem-solving, teamwork, practical laboratory and presentation skills are developed in a contextualized manner throughout the programme. These skills are enhanced in seminars, workshops, practical laboratory write ups and coursework assignments. Assessment Methods A Assessment Methods: The assessment methods associated with each course are given in the course specifications. Each course is assessed by a combination of coursework, laboratory -practical sessions, oral and poster presentations, seminar presentations and end of semester examinations. The nature of the coursework is appropriate to the subject area and learning outcomes outlined in

6 the course specification forms. Law based modules expose the students to experience crossexamination in a (mock) courtroom setting. B Assessment Methods: A variety of assessment methods are used that include, formal examinations, open book examinations (tests), essay coursework, numerical problem-solving coursework, oral presentations, poster presentations and a written dissertation in the final year. C Assessment Methods: A variety of assessment methods are used to assess subject practical skills. These include, critical review of the literature, critical review of modern analytical techniques, synoptic problem solving and computer generated and statistical evaluations of pharmaceutical data. All assessed laboratory reports will be written to GLP and Forensic practice standard D Assessment Methods: A variety of assessment methods are used to assess transferable key skills. These include problem solving. These assessments are contextualised in A, B and C above.
