Contents
• What is feedback and why is it important? Students should read the introductory chapters of several text books to get a good feel for this. It will be tested on the exam! • How do I analyse the impact of feedback?

Learning and assessment

A main learning outcome at University is students developing confidence to:

1.Learn independently. 2.Make their own judgements about quality and accuracy of their work. 3.Be able to reflect on numerous forms of input and feedback to improve.

What do I expect?
• Students should attend and be seated ready to start on time.

• Students should do about 5 hours work per week outside lectures on my part of ACS211.

Don’t complain if you are finding it tough but not putting in the hours! A good professional puts in as many hours as are needed to stay on top of their work.

Lecture notes
1.I will give you most but not all of the content required for the exam/assignments. 2.Some material you need to find and learn for yourself and make your own judgement about your competence. 3.The exam will be slightly different this year and my part (parts 1,2 on previous years) will have no choices. Answer every question.

A PC laboratory is booked for 4 Fri 2-3 (SHSB) weeks 3hours a week so you can practise using MATLAB to reinforce learning and prepare for assessment in week 11. I w i li n o re e m a i s u n l ss o f a p e l g l e •You can ask tutorial style questions U S E M O LE ! in this slot or try to see me before/after lectures.

Use discussions board (not email) for general queries so everyone can see question and answer.

Before next week

11

Read the introductory chapters of at least 2 recommended control text books. Write a brief summary of why feedback is important? Share these on MOLE. Make sure you understand terms such as feedback, summing junction, open-loop, closed-loop, transference. Revise role and definition of transfer functions, block diagram formation,

Audio recorders

Don’t forget to use these for key interactions with each other and staff. Remember you cannot share these on you tube or any other medium outside university.

Practice is essential to gain Students are always asking for more tutorial understanding
questions.

13

1.The text books are full of excellent questions and worked examples; if you want more practise, use these! 2.The past exams are on the ACSE web site for you to try. Many include answers. 3.There are some questions and tutorial sheets embedded in the notes.
