FacilitiesStudents are primarily taught in recently refurbished lecture theatres, which make use of latest AV technology.
The audiology Clinical Skills laboratory is equipped with the latest audiometric instruments, identical to those that the students will encounter in practice.
The virtual learning environment, Blackboard, is used throughout the course in all areas of teaching from revision to assessment.
Students can obtain course texts and relevant journals from the library either electronically or in book form.
Learning, teaching & assessmentAs audiology cohort numbers are small we can use a wide range of teaching approaches. These include traditional lectures, seminars, tutorials, group work, problem based learning etc. In year 3 students undertake a project, which helps them develop their research skills.
We have a fully equipped Clinical Skills Laboratory and we also use the virtual learning environment to support all teaching activities. This includes using a computerised patient to help students develop their clinical skills along with simulations of clinical situations.
Assessments are varied and include exams, essay writing, practicals, report writing, seminars and presentations.
