This was a very hands on module, I was able to observe a child and their development for the basis of my research. I was given the opportunity to understand how children develop and how their environment influences them.My lecturer gave tremendous support and resources to help complete the module.

Course content is interesting and lectures and seminars are well structured. However more assignment guidance about what is expected is necessary

This is the most interesting module I have ever done! The course is both practical and theory, we complete all the lectures regarding the theory information, have an exam on this but also have a practical exam, which is amazing! We have both fire and explosion practicals, where we act and are marked as if we were real CSI's at a crime scene, we have to complete a crime scene, documenting as we go along, taking photographs currently, measurements at the scene and so on. Everything has to be completed officially, as if we were real CSI's, which is really exciting and gives us a true insight into what these kinds of jobs will be like in the future.The lecturers are always so enthusiastic, they put everything into what they teach us, they all have experience in working in the police or CSI field in one way or another, which is amazing.

Documenting the Real: Theory is a second year theoretical module within the Film, Radio & Television course at Canterbury Christ Church University. Quite honestly, it's the best course I have done so far, but that could be because the lecturer actually listens to people and pays attention to peoples progress. The lead lecturer of this module provides support and openly offers one-to-one tutorials, whereas, many other lecturers shudder at the thought of someone disturbing their office hours. The course content is intriguing and for me was gripping as it was very in depth and really exposes the truth behind documentary - Such as shedding light on Constructed Documentary for Cinematic Pleasure. The essays are at a nice length of 2000 words, and you get to choose out of a variety of questions for the two essays, both with deadlines at either end of two terms. There is a practical module that coincides with this module, however, it wasn't as interesting as the theory. With this module I felt that I was actually learning about something that I didn't know, as with my other modules, we were covering the same topics that we had been for the past 12 months before starting these and so for anyone who is at CCCU studying First Year Film, Radio & TV, and is interested in actually learning the ins and outs of film, I say: Go for Doc The Real: Theory. If you try and gain all of the practical subjects, you're confidence will knocked and you may not regain it, and will continue to do the same mind-numbing stuff until the end of your third year, whereas with this, I felt like I was actually getting what I paid for, as I was actually learning something.

I enjoy the module as it drills in on taking part in physical activity and why it is important to take part for health reasons. It relates this back to theory regarding why people like exercise, why people don't like exercise and external factors such as music that can be used as a tool for motivation.

One of the most exciting lectures in the whole of the course, it discusses important historical policing events, such as the miners’ strike to develop our understanding of modern policing. It highlights current and concerning issues such as terrorism and cybercrime. The lecturer leading the course, listens to student advice and adapts lectures and examinations to make all students more comfortable with the course. An engaging lecture that asks questions with no, yes or no questions that create discussions and arguments within class that broadens everyone’s views on life and policing. Even the essay questions were thought-out well to provide an interesting research element for the students and constructive feedback was given. This module took an initiative approach and did an assignment as a group presentation instead of an exam, which allowed all students to create new friendship ties and develop skills needed for the police work, such as group work and meeting dead-lines. All topics discussed allow students to broaden their view on what the police force achieves, and how it is always evolving and even more so at a quicker rate in the 21st century. But, it explores other jobs, around the police force, such as border-control, private security firms and MI5. Which allow all students a chance to find a future pathway that interests them the most.

This module has introduced the development of children and what factors have a positive and negative affect on how a child develops. This module has opened my eyes to just how much can impact on a child's life and will enable me to identify this in practise. I have found this module really beneficial.

Teaching is mostly good, lecturers are passionate and content is interesting. However better course organisation is needed and consistency with second marking. Would also like deadlines to not be bunched and a little more guidance about what is required for some assessments.

This module helps the student to realise that the current police leadership and management structure of policing is outdated and also seeks to develop thoughts and to provoke questions from the students about whether or not the rank structure of policing is still appropriate in the 21st century.

The module is very interesting and has broadened my existing knowledge into the promotion system of the police and also how the police are reluctant to change existing recruiting processes.

Cultural resistance is the main topic within this module and the lectures try to enhance the audience views on the management procedures and whether they are comparable to other organisations.

The module is taught very well, with great enthusiasm, professionalism and a real sense of passion which helps students engage and express opinions to the subject matters, which will usually spark relevant debates between piers.

The module although difficult to understand, if external reading is completed then it becomes much clearer and more interesting the more you read and research.

No exams is also a bonus.
