Learning and Teaching
The multidisciplinary programme team presents a range of projects, lecture programmes, seminars, workshops, design studios, field visits, case studies, and directed reading that reflect current procedures and practices in Architectural Technology.
Module assessment strategies have a wide range of methods including portfolio presentations, essays, reports, oral and graphical presentations and continuous assessment regimes, particularly in the studio-based aspects of modules.
Our integrated team of architects and built environment professionals teach and research architecture, technology and sustainability. The academic team is committed to a rich range of teaching, learning and student support, and assessment methods to reflect the vocational nature of the course. The course draws on the wide range of research expertise in the Leicester School of Architecture, ranging from architectural design, urban design, technology and sustainability to the history and philosophy of architecture. You will also benefit from the input of industrial specialists and visiting guest lecturers.
You will be taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, group work and self-directed study. Assessment is through coursework (presentations, essays and reports). Your precise timetable will depend on the optional modules you choose to take, however, in your first year. Typically, in your first year, you will normally attend around 16 hours of timetabled taught sessions (lectures and tutorials) each week, and we expect you to undertake at least 23 further hours of independent study to complete project work and research.
