24. Main educational aims of the course

The Chemistry pathway is intended to integrate the fundamentals of chemistry and the biological
sciences to produce graduates with the ability to design and use molecules to accomplish specific
diagnostic and curative tasks and for use in various testing and analytical strategies. The primary
area in which graduates would look for employment would be appropriate areas of the healthcare
industries, but the numerical and analytical skills developed on this course would also be in demand
in many other areas.

The aims of the single honours Chemistry course would be to:
 improve understanding of the underlying theoretical constructs underpinning modern chemical
   innovation;
 explore the influence of molecular structure on the properties of materials;
 develop an awareness of the mechanisms involved in chemical reactions;
 enhance intellectual and practical skills necessary for the collection, analysis, interpretation and
   understanding of chemical data;
 develop an awareness of the ethical implications of modern scientific work;
 develop skills of self-evaluation and analysis to enhance career development.

For the major and joint awards, the main aims are to:

   outline the influence of structure and bonding on the properties of organic molecules;
   develop an awareness of the mechanisms involved in reactions in organic chemistry;
   enhance intellectual and practical skills necessary for the collection, analysis, interpretation and
    understanding of chemical data;
   develop an awareness of the ethical implications of modern scientific work;
   develop skills of self-evaluation and analysis to enhance career development.

For the minor award, the main aims are to:

   develop an awareness of the influence of molecular structure and bonding in organic chemistry;
   enhance intellectual and practical skills necessary for the collection, analysis, interpretation and
    understanding of chemical data;
   develop an awareness of the ethical implications of modern scientific work.

Course learning outcomes

        Collectively, course learning outcomes contribute to the development of the undergraduate graduate attributes
        of:
        A1 Self awareness: to have the attribute of knowing oneself and be able to understand and clarify
           personal strengths and weaknesses through personal development planning; to be able to develop
           career management tools and represent one’s own abilities with confidence and self esteem
        A2 Performance in a variety of idioms and contexts: to have the attribute of understanding the limits
           and applicability of the subject discipline and to be able to perform as a graduate in a variety of
           idioms and contexts by incorporating into personal, subject and professional practice, a fluent
           awareness of the subject and the wider picture, and to be able to communicate this effectively.
        A3 Creative and ethical: to have the attribute of working through problems and making creative and
           purposeful change and adaptation with an awareness of ethical and moral codes and
           demonstrating integrity of conduct, including an awareness of, and respect for, cultural diversity.

        Links with graduate attributes are referenced in the learning outcomes contained in each of the four subsections.
25a Knowledge and Understanding

Learning outcomes

    By the end of the course the student is expected to have developed a knowledge and
    understanding of:
     the physical and chemical properties of elements and compounds, how they react and
        interact on a molecular basis; [A2]
     analytical techniques and their application in the determination of the structure of a compound
        and/or the composition of a specified sample;[A2]
     the practical skills necessary to safely carry out experiments such as might be required of a
        competent professional chemist viz the ability to devise and carry out reactions to synthesise
        specified compounds and to identify and perform the analytical measurements needed to
        characterise multi-component systems;[A2[, [A3]
     the analytical skills to interpret results obtained from experimental work and draw appropriate
        conclusions as to requirements for future work; [A3]
     the diverse modern industrial applications of chemistry and of the role of the chemist in
        Industry.[A1], [A2]

Teaching/Learning Strategies and Methods

The students’ knowledge and understanding are developed through an integrated programme of
timetabled sessions, guided study and self-directed/private study.

      The timetabled sessions include lectures, tutorials, workshops, poster presentations, seminars
      and laboratory work.

      The guided work includes problem solving; preparation for tutorials, seminars, workshops and
      poster presentations; literature searching; case studies; laboratory sessions. In addition, most
      laboratory work is preceded by pre-laboratory assignments. The guided work also includes
      preparation of formal reports (as distinct from keeping routine laboratory notebook records), and
      may also involve the use of CAL and video material. Guided work is carried out variously as
      individual work or as part of a team.

      The self-directed study is mainly devoted to students developing their knowledge and
      understanding of the subject material, working as independent learners.

Assessment

Summative assessment of the students’ work is based on elements drawn from the whole range of
their learning experience. Most modules are assessed in part by an unseen examination and deploy
a variety of other assessment methods such as assignments and reports, tutorial work, progress and
mini-tests, practical work and reports, and poster and seminar presentations. The coursework
assessment elements are used formatively where possible.



25b Cognitive skills

Learning outcomes
By the end of the course the student is expected to have developed higher order skills that are
reflected in their ability to:
      recognise the ethical conflicts that may arise within their subject, particularly in relation to
         contemporary chemical knowledge and practice; [A3]
      adopt a critical and reasoned approach to the validity of data and the interpretation of data;
         [A2]
      analyse different situations and problems showing a high level of understanding and
         reasoning and providing their own interpretation of information; [A2]
      provide a realistic assessment of their own level of achievement.[A1]
Teaching/Learning Strategies and Methods

At all three levels cognitive skills are developed through the analysis of case studies, the
interpretation and evaluation of scientific data and information, the resolution of qualitative and
quantitative problems, and discussion of the social and ethical implications of topical issues in the
area of Chemistry. The final level project provides an opportunity to place knowledge gained through
the degree in a context within the subject and society at large and also to develop skills in synthesis,
formulation of solutions and critical appraisal of data.

Assessment

Cognitive skills are summatively assessed by, inter alia, information abstracting and reviewing
exercises, problem solving exercises, essays requiring the ability to sustain an argument, and the
Research Project report and its oral defence. Poster and seminar presentations provide scope for
both peer assessment and immediate formative feedback.


25c Transferable Skills including those of Employability and Professional Practice

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course the student is expected to be able to:
 display the interpersonal skills required to work in a scientific, particularly laboratory, based
    environment;[A1]
 demonstrate an independence in their ability to study;[A1]
 communicate a subject clearly and accurately orally, and in a variety of forms of written
    English;[A2]
 select and obtain information and to interpret that information, drawing conclusions from and
    recognising the limitations of the available data;[A2],[A3]
 employ a full range of investigative skills which can be applied to any set task; [A3]
 use analytical and reviewing skills in order to produce accurate summaries based on a body of
    literature. [A2]

Teaching/Learning Strategies and Methods

While the acquisition of transferable skills is an inherent part of the learning process in all modules,
this is highlighted in the core spine modules. For example, the basic skills needed to abstract, analyse
and communicate qualitative and quantitative information are introduced at Certificate level in the
Professional Studies and the Maths/Data Analysis and Presentation modules, and then developed
further in subject specific modules at all levels. Preparation for employment also begins in the
Professional Studies module with discussion of the range of opportunities available to graduates in
Chemistry. The Careers Management Skills Package, developed by the University Careers
Development and Employment Service, is then used in the Intermediate level Project Preparation
module to guide students in their consideration of career options, and hence an appropriate choice of
Honours level project. Opportunities exist at all levels for both independent learning and team work,
and for the exploration of the professional and ethical codes within which scientific workers operate.

Assessment

Transferable skills are assessed by, inter alia, essays, group reports, poster presentations, seminar
presentations, data analysis and interpretation exercises and the production and maintenance of a
personal profile and curriculum vitae.

25d Subject-specific Practical Skills

It should be remembered that the term "practical skills" in relation to the experimental
sciences has a specific meaning related to performance in experimental work carried out in
the laboratory.
Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course the student is expected to be able to:
       display skills, aptitudes and confidence in the performance of a wide range of laboratory-
          based practical activities at a level appropriate to degree training; [A2],[A3]
       work safely and with regard to the environmental impact of the work;[A2], [A3]
       keep disciplined, detailed and accurate laboratory notebook records, written during
          execution of the experiment; [A1], [A2]
       relate the outcome of an experiment to the theory encountered in the lecture courses. [A2]



Teaching/Learning Strategies and Methods

A number of the modules on the programmes are practically based. Others contain timetabled
practical sessions. Skills are developed via appropriate exercises accompanied by demonstrations by
staff or on electronic media. Pre-lab exercises are used to encourage preparation prior to sessions.
Students are encouraged to record observations immediately and develop appropriate skills in
interpreting results by set exercises accompanying the practicals.

Assessment

Formative assessment is given continuously during the sessions in the dialogue between the
demonstrating staff and the students. Reports on exercises form the basis for assessment of most
practical skills and these are also used for formative feedback. Performance is also assessed by
practical examination, oral reporting, poster presentation and unseen examination.

Notes
1.         HEO subject core must be taken in the other subject area.
2.         Only one of these two cores should be taken, the other slot becoming designate/elective
3.         One of the two subject employability cores must be taken. If you take this module as your employability
           core, you must take a project in your other area of study.
4.         Only one of these two slots must be used to take a chemistry core/designate module, the other becoming
