13. A synopsis of the curriculum
This module is an in-depth study of some current aspects of inorganic chemistry. The solid state, the first row d block
elements and transition metal complexes are examined in detail. These topics are then expanded to cover homogeneous
and heterogeneous catalysis.
The module offers opportunities for learners to research specialised areas and is appropriate for employees working in a
research environment or for learners wishing to work in this area or to continue study at a higher level.

15. Learning and Teaching Methods, including nature and number of contact hours and total study hours which
will be expected of students, and how these relate to achievement of the intended learning outcomes
The total learning time for the module will be 150 hours. The module will be delivered by means of lectures, seminars,
and practical work. Learners will be expected to undertake approximately 90 hours of independent study, including
research, required reading and answering assignments.
There will be 32 one hour lectures, 4 one hour supervision/problem sessions one per learning outcome and 8 half day
laboratory sessions (total 60 hours). This will include a variety of tasks, discussions, study materials and case studies,
practical’s, as appropriate to the topics being covered, with the focus being on the learning outcomes.
16. Assessment methods and how these relate to testing achievement of the intended learning outcomes

Implications for learning resources, including staff, library, IT and space
This is an existing module and there are no new implications for learning resources.
As far as can be reasonably anticipated, the curriculum, learning and teaching methods and forms of
assessment do not present any non-justifiable disadvantage to students with disabilities
