||Distance learning Unit (IEM).
The aim is to provide the student with an opportunity to apply the skills learned in the first four modules to a practical real life case study, and to improve their practical knowledge by attending talks given by practitioners working in each of the relevant environmental fields.
After successfully completing this unit students should be able to put the academic content of the course in to a 'real world' context. Also, working in groups enables the students to meet and get to know their cohort group, and allows them to meet the subject tutors and other course staff. It also provides the students with the opportunity for face to face tuition and discussion of any problems.
The students practice team and presentation skills in the case study project which they complete.
Three lectures/discussion sessions led by consultants/practitioners in EIA, Audit and CBA; and an integrated case study exercise involving all three techniques ending with a presentation given by the students on the final day.
