Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
The court procedures lecture and residential school were really interesting, students identified how these will help in their future careers. Have Your Say, residential school feedback and personal feedback to the lecturer. Continue with the court procedures lectures and residential school.
Have a reflective component to enable reflection on the progression of the investigation. Have Your Say Survey Consider the introduction of an appropriate reflective tool to encourage students to reflect on their investigation progress.
Having lectures from the Human Factors Investigation and the Learning from Failure lecturers in this unit enabled students to apply that knowledge directly and expand their investigation lines of enquiry. Have Your Say Survey Continue with the interactive Tutorials from those linked courses, so that students directly apply the full range of skills from across the degree to the development of this report.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Prepare a detailed report of a designated accident investigation.
  2. Critically evaluate the usefulness in Accident Forensics of observed court processes, evidence and outcomes.
  3. Employ effective communication strategies appropriate to disseminating findings from a major accident.
  4. Demonstrate reflective skills appropriate to the development of the graduating practitioner.
