Use of evidence based lines of evidence in developing critical thinking and interpretation;
Encourages presentation of quantitative data and extrapolation to genuine scenarios.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
In addition to lectures, practical classes and field trip there is an online moodle-based learning system that will be core to the learning experience. This will enable scientists with broad numerical skills to rapidly enhance their soecialisation within this discipline. The moodle-based learning system was developed for both university and CPD learning to enable users to make the use of genuine data in understanding the underlying concepts of this course. Each of the assessments are based upon genuine sites using data collated for this very purpose. Each of the stages of the training require integration with a set of models that are widely used internationally for the diagnosis and mitigation of contaminated land.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1st Attempt: 100% continuous assessment- composed of: 50%- testing and calibration of a set of relevant QRA models and 50% illustration of conceptual site model and remediation strategy for a defined scenario.
Resit: Resubmission of failed individual elements of continuous assessment
Tutorial sessions will be arranged upon students’ request to provide opportunity for student-student and student-tutor interaction. Formative assessment will be provided during this interaction. A strong emphasis will be made throughout the course on informal verbal feedback during these sessions.
Each student will receive individual feedback and a mark for the assessments. Feedback will be provided as written comments. Students who are identified as having difficulty in successfully completing the coursework assessment tasks will be invited to meet members of the course team to identify difficulties and discuss solutions.
