Course Studies in Engineering & Technology in Yorkshire and the Humber in United Kingdom. ICT in Education - Advanced Professional Development [Level HE7] part-time This course allows you to integrate theoretical aspects of ICT with your own professional practice in education, as well as enabling you to assess your own achievement of the learning outcomes. In discussion with your tutor, you will identify a potential e-learning development portfolio that will be suitable for your professional practice. Your portfolio needs to be significant in scale and scope. Routine development, such as that involved in normal course learning material development (normal power point presentations, traditional written handouts, etc.), is NOT what is envisaged. Some examples of the type of projects previous students have undertaken are given in the Further Course Information section below. This is a challenging course that involves both individual tutorial appointments for consultation and group teaching. You will use the WebCT discussion forum facility and actively participate in online discussions in order to get the most from tutorials and group work. You must complete required preliminary reading and tasks before attending any of the sessions (face-to-face or online discussion forums). For individual or group tutorials, you must bring your work and prepare questions to be addressed / clarified. On successful completion of this course you will be awarded a certificate of credit for 20 credits at Level HE7. In addition, you may use these credits towards one of the Masters in Education degrees offered by the University of Bolton. After an initial informal exploration, and an initial literature search (intensive use of electronic based resources available at the University of Bolton library and on the internet, is expected), you will formulate clear and specific project aims and objectives. You will agree these with your supervising tutor. The initial literature search including web based research is important. There must be up-to-date, published literature that is relevant to your proposed project. A key part of the assignment involves demonstrating that what you have done is informed. The results of the literature search are submitted with a written piece early on (see below). Having finalised and agreed your project aims and objectives, you will create an action plan showing key stages, criteria for completion, date for completion and keep this up to date. You will be expected to maintain contact with your supervisor at all stages, and WebCT provides the communication facilities necessary to achieve this. All work undertaken and submitted must be with guidance from your supervisor. When developing group-work you will need to keep a meeting log book to record the progress of your work, ideas and reading. Some examples of projects undertaken by previous students: a) Applying e-pedagogy to a multimedia online course: evaluating different pedagogy theories using technology and selecting the more effective one for a case study. b) The introduction of a VLE to support language learning in HE: a feasibility study using a VLE to support, by blended learning, a language course in HE. c) An e-learning portfolio for a HND in Photography: analysis, selection, justification and demonstration of multimedia resources to support a HND module. This module is part of a suite of professional development courses offered by the University of Bolton covering contemporary issues and developments in education. The modules are designed to equip you with advanced skills and knowledge as you progress in your career and take on additional levels of responsibility. To gain a Masters in Education award you need 180 credits; 120 credits from undertaking advanced professional development courses or other selected modules and 60 credits from completing a dissertation. There has to be a balance between what are called option and core modules but this is straightforward and the Programme Leader can advise. The courses can be taken over a number of years, to fit in with your career and work/life balance. Most part-time students gain their Masters qualification in 2 to 3 years, but you can take up to 5 years if you wish. You will have access to 24/7 IT facilities and campus-wide WiFi, as well as one-to-one support from professional and highly experienced tutors. Entry requirements This course is open to anyone with an interest in developing blended learning skills and e-learning. You will need a computer with internet access as this course involves on-line learning. [-]

Course Studies in Engineering & Technology in Yorkshire and the Humber in United Kingdom. Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) Chartered Membership (CM) Examination Preparation Class - part-time There is a significant difference between a junior engineer who can carry out the design of individual structural elements and a senior engineer who can identify engineering problems and solve them with viable structural solutions within the scope of a design brief, taking account of structural stability, durability, aesthetics and cost. One of the purposes of this course is to assist junior engineers in their journey to become senior engineers. The course is open to all structural engineers wanting to develop their skills to include structural scheme design. It is assumed that all engineers enrolling on the course have a good working knowledge of design of the primary structural materials. The course includes manual methods of analysis and manual design calculations. It also encourages the use of hand drawn conceptual design sketches and sketch details. Throughout the course, use will be made of past questions from the IStructE CM Exam in tutorials to allow engineers to practice new techniques learnt on the course. There will be a day long mock exam where candidates will be given the opportunity under exam conditions to take a recent exam (likely to be last year’s exam). Opportunity will later be given for peer marking and discussion of the mock exam scripts (or other scripts brought to the session). Marks will not be given by the session leaders and the mock exam is not compulsory. The course includes issues such as exam technique, time management and mark allocation as well as opportunities for coaching using tutorials. In one session, we will invite one or two engineers who sat and passed the examination recently to speak on their experience of the examination, give their suggestions for suitable preparation strategies and answer some of the questions that trouble candidates. Two of the sessions are earmarked for bridge design; however the following topics are excluded from the course: offshore engineering, silos, chimneys, water towers and seismic/dynamic problems. Finally, as the course is exercise and tutorial based, those candidates who put the most effort into their contributions will gain the most from the course. “You get out what you put in.” Entry requirements Applicants should hold BSc (Hons) or BEng (Hons) Civil Engineering or Structural Engineering and be in the process of completing the IStructE’s Professional Review Interview.

Why One-On-One Training Works Well With Post Production In the post-production niche of the music industry, a special set of skills is required to be successful—more so than just learning principles in a textbook. In fact, most post-production disciplines such as dialogue editing, sound design, mixing, foley and music composition already naturally involve some sort of mentoring. Mastering your craft really requires getting one-on-one instruction and feedback from someone who is already successful in the field. This is why our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach is such a great fit for careers in post production: it is a much more effective way to learn these specialized skills than a classroom setting can provide.

More about the Recording Connection Electronic Music Training Program You dream about it at night. You obsess over it during the day. You know you have the natural talent, and you believe you have what it takes to make it in the industry as an electronic music producer. The only problem is that if you’re going to be anything more than a “bedroom producer,” you’ve got to up your game—and you can’t really get what you need in some expensive college classroom. You need studio experience, you need guidance from a mentor, and you need connections. Lots of connections. You need to get your foot in the door. Making the right choice for your education can be difficult, especially when it seems like so few schools offer what you’re looking for, and they charge too much for the privilege, anyhow. What you really need is a chance to learn from a successful industry pro in a real recording studio—someone who has already gone before you and made a successful career as an electronic music producer. This is exactly what the Recording Connection now provides with our Electronic Music Producing Program. We pair you with a seasoned industry pro as an apprentice (extern) to learn the ropes one-on-one in a real recording studio, so you not only learn to use the equipment, software and tricks of the trade, but you also have the opportunity to make insider connections and gain real studio experience. Whether your focus is on EDM, trance, chillwave or other styles of electronic music, the best place to learn is in the studio where the action is happening. That’s where we put you from day one.
