Response to 2016/17 survey feedback for IAR.
I have taken note of the feedback from students in this course survey, and have the following comments in response.
There are few comments, which I hope represents overall satisfaction of students with this course. Regarding the practicals, there is indeed an intent to make them somewhat open-ended to allow students to explore methods that interest them. As the practical tasks are closely linked to the lecture content, this can also serve to reinforce knowledge needed for the exam (i.e. replacing conventional 'study' time). I have tried to clarify what are the minimum requirements.
