How you’ll learn
Actual teaching contact hours will vary depending on the level of study and the requirements of a particular semester. A significant part of the course is studio-based content development (web and media). Lectures and laboratory sessions, seminars and tutorials are also utilised. Online teaching and learning are utilised to support module work.
In addition, you will be expected to undertake significant self-directed study each week, depending on the demands of individual modules. The number of hours of class time will vary from year to year: it’s likely to be around 14 hours contact per week in the first year (around six hours per week per module) dropping to around 10 (around four hours per week per module) in the final year as you become a more independent learner.
As an innovative and enterprising institution, the university may seek to utilise emerging technologies within the student experience. For all courses (whether on-campus, blended, or distance learning), the university may deliver certain contact hours and assessments via online technologies and methods.
This course will be assessed using a variety of methods which could vary depending upon the module. Assessment methods include formal examinations, coursework, tests, essays, practical or project work, group work and presentations.
The Coventry University Group assessment strategy ensures that our courses are fairly assessed and allows us to monitor student progression towards the achieving the intended learning outcomes.
On successful completion of this course, we would expect a graduate to be:
- An internationally focused computing professional who is design aware, or
- An internationally focused design professional who is programming aware.
