Programme specification (pdf) - University of Hertfordshire

specification, design, implementation and evaluation of computer based entertainment and multimedia systems. Additionally for BSc Information Technology (Business Systems): A11- An in depth understanding of the theories and principles relevant to the specification, design, implementation, evaluation and use of computer based systems employed within a business context. Additionally for the MEng Computer Science Programmes: A12- A deeper and systematic understanding of the advanced principles and theories of design, implementation and management of software. Additionally for the BSc Computer Studies award: A13 – A broad understanding of the principles of a range of computing related domains Intellectual skills - able to: Teaching/learning methods & Assessment strategies Not applicable under QAA Benchmarking statement. Intellectual skills subsumed under Knowledge and Understanding Practical skills - able to: Teaching/learning methods & Assessment strategies C1-Use specific tools, techniques, notations and methods in the context of the design and development of programmed computer systems. C2-Use computer systems and associated technology to support the development of programmed systems. C3-Engage in effective discussion of technical information as appropriate C1, C2 and C3 are addressed throughout the levels using lectures and tutorials for the presentation of instructional material, with practicals, independent study and project work offering the opportunity to practise the skills in a supportive environment. The amount of instructional material will decrease as the programme progresses, with students being expected to take an increasing responsibility for developing their own skills and identifying V1.6 / Main Programme Specification / January 2013 / AS © University of Hertfordshire 2012 8 At level 4 practical skills C1 and C2 will be assessed directly through coursework, but also indirectly through unseen examinations where understanding developed through activity relying on these skills is required. C3 and C4 are assessed at level 5, through a group design task. Students passing the six modules will be deemed to have met the minimum threshold level in

to the system design and development task. C4-Carry out design activities ranging from initial problem identification to system implementation and evaluation; and as an individual or participate as a member of a team carrying out a subset of these activities. Additionally for BSc Computer Science and specialist awards: C5- Design, Implement and evaluate systems as characterised by Computer Science approaches, methodologies and practices. Additionally for BSc Information Technology and specialist awards C6- Design, Implement and evaluate systems as characterised by Information Technology approaches, methodologies and practices. Additionally for BSc Computer Studies Award C7- Design, Implement and evaluate systems as characterised by a broad range of computing related domains. Transferable skills - able to: D1-Communicate effectively orally, in writing and visually using the conventions, vocabulary and the form and register of academic expression. D2-Manage their own learning including time management, the organization and retrieval of information, and the identification of personal needs for continuing professional development. resources to support this development. C4 will also be addressed throughout, but the examples used at level 4 will be very simple, and considerable support will be given in problem identification and evaluation. During levels 5, 6 and 7 this support will be reduced and far more open tasks will be set. Students will be exposed to, and expected to utilise, a variety of technologies such as operating environments, programming languages, applications and specification techniques, and at level 6 and M they will be expected to extend the skills developed in C1 – C7 to the task of evaluating and selecting appropriate candidates for specific tasks by level 6. The industrial placement period offers enhanced opportunities for developing either a wider range of skills, or developing specific skills to higher levels of proficiency. C1- C6 are further developed and deepened through an individual self-defined and managed project at levels 6 and 7. Throughout, the learner is encouraged to develop practical skills further by independent study Teaching/learning methods & strategies Transferable skills are developed through using a variety of teaching and learning methods and strategies. Students are expected to take an increasing responsibility for their own learning as the programme progresses, and are supported in meeting D1 through tutoring and guided independent study using resources provided both locally and centrally (e.g. the Learning Resources Centre runs sessions B1-B6 necessary to progress to examination for an Honours award. The design activities encompassed by C4 – C6 are also assessed at level 6 (or level 7) via an in depth individual project. The broad range of skills developed by C7 at Level 6 is assessed via a range of coursework assignments and examinations as defined by the selected modules. Assessment Transferable skills are assessed through a variety of means built into the curriculum. D1 is assessed summatively primarily at level 6, although many assessment tasks at levels 4 and 5 will provide formative feedback to the students. D2 and D3 are assessed at all levels by setting tasks that V1.6 / Main Programme Specification / January 2013 / AS © University of Hertfordshire 2012 9
