- having basic knowledge of internet research skills;
- using IT software to prepare a slide show for use in seminars.
|Assessment will consist of a small multi-choice assessment at the end of each module. Completion dates for these assessments will be at the student's own pace but all assessments must be completed by the Friday prior to the start of the exam diet in the second semester, with the final results (pass/fail) being presented at the June Board of Examiners.|
Failure to do the assessments or unsuccessful completion in year 1 will require a re-sit in year 2. If still failed, a final re-sit in summer of year 2 is permitted. Continued failure will prevent entry into Honours.
||The course materials will be presented solely online, allowing students to work at their own pace through the materials. They must complete the work by the end of semester 2 of their first year in the School of Divinity. In addition there are face-to-face 30minute lectures to introduce each of the modules.
