Module Guide

Templates for the 2016/17 Academic Year

 

From 2016/17, there are two approaches to the Module Guide Template:

The New Interactive Template

The Traditional Word Template

 

Module Guide - Interactive Template

Many sections of the traditional Module Guide Template have now been created as webpages to which you can simply provide the necessary link on your VLE site to direct students to view the relevant material.

The table lists each of the 11 sections of the Module Guide below with a series of links to relevant webpages which can be embedded into the Module VLE site. This new approach removes the need for the content to be provided in a separate publication and also allows any necessary updates to be made in a single location rather than across hundreds of different module guides. Module Leaders can simply include the relevant links on their VLE sites.

Section
Title

1

Key Information

No link is provided for this section as the information will be module specific. The information under this section should be provided elsewhere on the VLE site:

  • name, location and contact details of Module Leader and Tutor(s)
  • link to the Module Definition Form (MDF)
  • a statement that all modules are governed by the Academic Regulations and that, in the event of any discrepancy between the Academic Regulations and any other publication, including the Module Guide, the Academic Regulations take precedence and will be applied.
2

Introduction to the Module

No link is provided for this section as the information will be module specific. The information under this section should be provided elsewhere on the VLE site, providing students with an outline of the Module which is likely to include reference to section 6a of the MDF, the Module Description. Module Leaders may provide further information about the module, if necessary.
3

Learning Outcomes
and Outline Delivery

No link is provided for this section as the information will be module specific. The information under this section should be provided elsewhere on the VLE site:

  • explain that Anglia Ruskin modules are taught on the basis of intended learning outcomes and that, on successful completion of the module, students will be expected to be able to demonstrate they have met those outcomes
  • specific attention should be drawn to relevant sections of the MDF (eg: by re-producing, or referencing, Section 7 of the MDF, providing additional information and detail to explain what is meant by each outcome).  It is recommended that some cross referencing between the intended learning outcomes and the assessment task(s) and related assessment criteria is provided.

Assessment

4.1 How this Module is Assessed: What You Need to Do and When

No link is provided for this section as the information will be module specific. Information in this section should be provided elsewhere on the VLE site:

  • explain how the module is assessed (referring to Section 9 of the MDF as appropriate) and providing detail as necessary (ie: include the assignment brief (eg: a set of essay questions) where relevant.  If the assessment task(s) has yet to be approved by the external examiner, state it is draft and give a provisional date for when it will be confirmed
  • detail the weighting of each task where there is more than one assessment task
  • provide cross referencing between the assessment task(s), the related assessment criteria and the intended learning outcomes
  • confirm the deadline date and time for submission of assessment tasks. Details of the final assessment deadline dates for each delivery period, in accordance with the Academic Calendar, should be consulted when setting the submission date
  • you may wish to draw attention to the Anglia Ruskin Assessment Protocol which encapsulates Anglia Ruskin's approach to assessment (the link for which is http://web.anglia.ac.uk/anet/academic/public/assessment_protocol.pdf)
4.2 Submitting Your Work

No link is provided for this section as the information will be module specific. Information in this section should be provided on the VLE site and will differ depending on the assessment method and/or the method for submission (eg: Grademark® or the iCentres).

Please see Section 4.2 of the Word template for the Module Guide for recommended wording.

4.3 Feedback on Assessed Work

The following link is available for Module Leaders to add to their VLE sites

Learning Resources

5.1 Library

ReadingLists@Anglia: the Learning Teaching and Assessment Strategy 2015-17 provides online Reading List targets for all live modules.  For the academic year 2016/17 all modules should have an online reading list for students to access.  If you require assistance in creating or updating your list please contact your subject team:

ALSS: libteam.alss@anglia.ac.uk; LAIBS: libteam.aibs@anglia.ac.uk; HSCE: libteam.fhsce@anglia.ac.uk; FMS: libteam.fms@anglia.ac.uk; FST: libteam.fst@anglia.ac.uk  

5.2 Other Resources

No link is provided for this section as the information will be module specific. The information under this section should be provided elsewhere on the VLE site: and should provide details of laboratories, studios, museums, art galleries, work-based learning environments, etc. You may be able to refer to the relevant information from Section 6d ‘Specialist Learning Resources’ of the MDF.

Module Guide - Word Template

The revised Word version of the Module Guide Templates for the 2016/17 academic year (updated June 2016) and an accompanying Summary of Amendments to the Module Guide Template document are now available.

The Word version provides the same content as the interactive version but in a single traditional document and assumes that the appropriate VLE site will not link to (and therefore duplicate) any of the content. The templates set out a minimum set of information which should be included in an Anglia Ruskin Module Guide. Suggestions are also made in italics regarding items which could be considered as ‘enhancement’ information which are not required to be included across the board at this time. The template is not intended to provide an exhaustive list of contents nor is it intended to restrict a Faculty or Department from being creative.

If a Word or PDF version of the Module Guide is used, it should be uploaded to the VLE.

 

How has the Template changed for 2016/17?

Changes that have been made are listed in a document which provides a Summary of Amendments to the Module Guide Template.

There is a separate template for each Faculty, following Anglia Ruskin's brand guidelines. The front page of each template follows the institutionally agreed colour format for each Faculty.

Templates: ALSS | LAIBS | HSCE | FMS | FST | Anglia Ruskin London

 

 

The Module Definition Form (MDF)

The Module Definition Form (MDF) is not included in the Module Guide but will be automatically available on the VLE pages for the module.

You can download a copy of the MDF, amend the Module Leader details and update the Key Texts/Literature section of the MDF from Manage My Modules (via e-Vision).
