CASE STUDY: Introduction to Human Anatomy

This practical unit introduces Level 2 undergraduate students to the anatomy of the human body on both a cellular and gross level. It will give them an opportunity to dissect and study the systems of the human body in small groups as well as view pre-dissected specimens and models. It is designed to enable students to acquire a solid foundation and understanding of the anatomy of the human body. As part of the module students have to state what is unique about a given organ via the form of business pitch and then create a marketing plan and advertisement in order to encourage donations.

CASE STUDY: All About Syntax

This module gives students the opportunity to broaden and deepen their knowledge of syntax (the study of sentence structure), whilst also exploring how work in syntax fits into and supports research in other sub-disciplines of linguistics – especially language acquisition. Students develop and pursue their own interests, though independent research and study, with the support and guidance of the module convenor. The module also gives students the opportunity to practise and enhance their skills in time and project management; communicating to a range of audiences; working in a team and identifying the strengths and weaknesses of their team members; understanding how other people learn; and self-reflection as a means of improving their own learning and performance.

CASE STUDY: Music in the Community

A number of our taught modules engage with the wider community through placements or studies. Music in the Community, launched in 2013, explores the potential of running Community Music events with organisations in Sheffield. Music Education placement-based module, and our Arts Administration feasibility studies, also offer students and groups in the city the chance to complete sustained pieces of work to benefit both parties.
