Assessment

How will I be taught and assessed?

The course is taught through a combination of illustrated lectures and seminars, day-schools, gallery visits and discussion.

You will learn how to present your creative ideas both through speaking and writing. You will also have access to online support through our virtual learning environment, which will accelerate your learning and enhance your experience of the course. Visit the ICE Online introductory website for a taste of the kind of online support you will receive.

All students are expected to take an active part in the course and submit work showing evidence of learning. In particular, you will be expected to:

  1. attend the teaching sessions, including gallery visits
  2. participate actively in class work
  3. undertake reading and assignments set by the tutors
  4. access resources and submit assignments through ICE Online, the Institute’s virtual learning environment.

It is essential that students have an email account and regular access to an internet-connected computer. The course is supported by a web-based Virtual Learning Environment and course communications will be sent via email. Students are expected to submit their assignments online and feedback on assignments is delivered online.

The computing facilities available at a public library or internet café may be sufficient and unlimited free computing and internet access will be available to you within the University Library throughout your course.

Students retain access to the learning resources on their course, and to the student common room, for two academic years after they have completed their course.
