Purpose: What are the overall aims of your or module? This section of the module provides a real opportunity for the subject team members to reflect on and share their philosophy, beliefs and values.  Module aims may be inspirational and aspirational and some aims may be so generic that they can be demonstrated and evaluated throughout the student experience.  For example, your module may aim to develop ethical and professional values or inspire a genuine engagement with the research/scholarship of the discipline. It’s best to avoid a re-packaging of the more detailed intended learning outcomes which come in the next section, and which will need explicitly to be assessed. Aims should give students a short description of the teaching intentions for the module.

Example: The aim of the module is to introduce you to the basic areas of digital electronics, as they may be encountered in physics instruments, and to provide you with the necessary theoretical back ground to carry out experimental investigations. (Physics, Level 1).

You will need effective communication skills to complete many of your modules, and to succeed in a job after you graduate. This module aims to provide you with an effective and common grounding in written and interpersonal skills. (L1 Skills module in Physics).
