Feedback Tutorials:
You will be asked to prepare some questions each week. Although these are not marked, you should always attempt the questions in advance. Answers to the pre-tutorial questions will be supplied and they are a good self-check on how well you have understood the material from the lectures. Use the tutorial to ask questions, answer more demanding questions and clear up any difficulties you have with a particular topic.

Works Visits:
Written feedback will be given on both the report and presentation for the group and individuals using assessment criteria issued before the assessment.
