This course uses blended learning pedagogical approaches, such as flipped classroom, supported by three main learning forms: (1) contact learning; (2) directed learning; and (3) self-directed Learning. A proportion of the course hours provide the opportunity for learning contact between students and experts (the facilitator and industry partners). Three interactive contact learning days are available to participants via interactive learning methods. The types of directed learning used are individual and team learning activities. Self-directed learning is also an important part of this course and students are encouraged to develop their ability to learn on their own and thus to take more responsibility for setting the objectives of their study work. This course uses Moodle as the course’s virtual learning environment. In short, this course provides:
24 hours of contact teaching/learning
110 hours of directed and self-directed learning
1 hour of assessment of one’s own learning
Recognition of prior learning
If students have acquired the required competences in previous work tasks, recreational activities or on another course, they can show their competences via a demonstration, and thus progress faster through their studies. More information and instructions for recognising and validating prior learning (RPL) are available at MyNet.
