The final assignment for this module is to evaluate the effectiveness of the module itself. Please critically reflect on the past twelve weeks and consider the following in completing your evaluation:
- What did you find to be the most valuable aspect of the module for you personally;
- What were the most effective aspects of the module?
- What did you find challenging?
- What didn’t work and how would you improve it?
- What topic would you add to future delivery?
This submission should be of no more than 1,000 words. It will account for 10% of your term mark.
Please submit via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) before 8 January.
Note: I have left in headings for your reading/unpacking convenience – I do not expect or recommend you leave these in your own.
