Teaching & Assessment

How will I be taught and assessed?

You will have access to resources, discussion forums, and course tasks within ICE's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Teaching methods will include lectures, presentations by guest speakers and facilitators, interactive and experiential learning activities, reading and assignments to be completed by participants outside classroom sessions and online discussion forums.

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 in each unit to:

  • attend the scheduled sessions;
  • participate actively in class work;
  • undertake reading and assignments set by the tutor;
  • access resources and submit assignments through the VLE.

Teaching

Teaching methods will include, peer coaching, demonstration coaching, role-plays, coaching simulations, case studies, small and large group discussion, and presentations. Some elements in the peer coaching will be co-tutored to provide immediate feedback and support to participants. Presentations from the facilitator will set out concepts, conceptual frameworks and theory relating to the topics to be covered; other modes of teaching and learning are designed to enable participants to achieve the stated learning aims and objectives.

 

Assessment

Each unit is assessed by a 3,000 - 3,500 word assignment. Students are required to provide evidence of 20 hours coaching. These 20 hours can include up to 7 hours of coaching with fellow students on the course, including classroom based activities.

You will need to set aside time for independent study. Credit is generally calculated in terms of hours of study and assumes that each credit is awarded for around 10 hours of successful learning; so, by this calculation, a 60-credit course will involve around 600 hours of successful study. Examples of how study may be broken down are: pre-class preparation, classroom time (lectures, seminars, discussion, presentations, debates, case-studies etc.); engagement with the VLE; peer-to-peer interaction, preparations for assignments, assignment writing and feedback and so on.

What is the status of this qualification?

The course is taught and awarded at first-year undergraduate level (FHEQ 4) and offers 60 credits within the Higher Education Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS). This is equivalent to half of the first year of full-time undergraduate study.

Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. If your first language is not English, please refer to our Information for Applicants pages for further guidance.
