FRTV module recognised as best practice
22 April 2015
The Higher Education Academy (HEA) and the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) have highlighted an employability module in Film, Radio and Television Studies as offering best practice, in their report: Effective Practice in the Design of directed independent learning opportunities.
he Professional Perspectives in the Creative Industries module was devised by Dr Ken Fox, Principal Lecturer in the School of Media, Art and Design and Media Consultant, Paula Moore.
Dr Ken Fox, said: “It is great to get recognition for a module that encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning and this is reflected in the quality of their pitches and the very positive response of the Industry Advisory Panel.”
The module was introduced in 2011 and has since provided opportunities to students to pitch their film, radio and television work to the Industry Advisory Panel (IAP).
The report focuses on directed independent learning practices in UK higher education and investigates what stakeholders have found to be the most effective practices in the inception, design, quality assurance and enhancement of directed independent learning.
The Report and the Compendium of Effective Practice are available on the HEA website.
