Modes of Teaching, Learning and Assessment and how these contribute to
the learning outcomes of the module
- The module will be taught by an introductory briefing session which will introduce students to the practical and academic aspects of the course. Lectures will provide information and case studies on the context, ethics and legal issues surrounding the virtual presentation of cultural heritage and its interpretation as well as methodologies and basic knowledge on presenting sites to the general public.
- The module is assessed through an evaluative report based on the student's observations during the trip which will also draw upon taught sessions on evaluation of heritage.
- The teaching in this module will be linked to the research of at least one member of staff leading the module, and students will investigate for themselves aspects of the presentation of heritage in that country.
