The Assessment Strategy has been designed to support and enhance the development of both subject-based and generic key skills, whilst ensuring that the module's Learning Outcomes are attained. The assessment for this module comprises of a collaborative online group presentation and a reflective account of your independent learning from this aspect and that acquired by progressing through the module content. This two part assessment encompasses all the specific module learning outcomes in addition to the CIEH Knowledge and Skills domains. Full details can be found in the Module Handbook and on the module's Blackboard site.
Component A will comprise of producing an on-line group presentation utilising Blackboard Collaborate. Working within designated groups, students will collaborate on-line to produce and deliver a presentation to a target audience. The presentation will require students to synthesise and critically evaluate the module content; the given topic will be based on how, and to what extent, environmental health law reduces risk exposure.
The use of a group presentation at this early stage of the programme will assist in group cohesion and identity as a learning community, demonstrate the benefits and challenges of working collaboratively, and develop the digital literacy required throughout the programme and later in professional practice.
Component B comprises an individual reflective log not exceeding 1,500 words that critically evaluates the process of personal learning gained by progressing through the module process and production of the on-line presentation. You will be prompted at key stages in the module to consider and write an account of your learning on a particular aspect; you will be invited to submit this for formative assessment. This account will then provide the foundation material for their individual reflective log.
For the summative assessment, you will be encouraged to write up to 1,000 words in relation to reflecting on your learning from the module and up to 500 words in relation to the benefits and challenges of preparing and delivering a group online presentation. Reflective writing fosters critical analysis and evaluation skills which are considered fundamental to the practice of environmental health, with the CIEH identifying 'reflective practice' as a threshold concept of the discipline.
You will be invited to submit your account of individual learning acquired throughout the module for formative assessment for individual feedback.
