Students will better equipped to digest volumes of primary and secondary evidence, and to argue clearly and concisely on both paper and in the seminar room. In addition they will improve technical skills including note taking, bibliographic skills, and computing literacy. Lectures are designed to introduce students to concepts, ideas, debates, interpretations and arguments that are unfamiliar to them, and to provide students with core knowledge about the subjects and themes explored in the module.
The lectures will also provide a framework upon which students can build their own knowledge and understanding. Lectures will make use of PowerPoint presentations, handouts and a variety of sources visual and textual which will help guide students in their independent study of recommended reading, and critical evaluation of source material.
Seminars are intended to complement lectures, but also allow students an opportunity to explore challenging subjects through the discussion of recommended reading. Preparation for seminars will promote critical skills and independent research, while the seminars themselves will foster oral presentation, interpersonal communication, discussion and debate, and critical skills, and will give students the confidence to develop their own arguments and interpretation in response to secondary and primary sources.
The balance of assessment provides students to demonstrate their abilities across the range of skills that this module has helped them to develop.
The assessed essay examines written argument, histroriographical engagement,independent thinking and independent research.
