Foundations for social work practice

Are you interested in social work or social care? Whatever your starting point, this key introductory OU level 1 module will develop your knowledge of the key roles of social care/social work, and introduce the standards and codes of practice relevant to each UK nation. You will also build key skills in information and communication technologies (ICT), information literacy and reflective writing. This module includes completion of a practice portfolio based on your current experience (within six months of module start) of paid or voluntary work in an appropriate social care setting. The module also includes participation in three online practice skills workshops, and four online tutorials.

Science, Maths & Technology 

Graphs, networks and design

This module is about using ideas from discrete mathematics to model problems, and representing these ideas through diagrams. The word 'graphs' refers to diagrams consisting of points joined by lines. These points may correspond to chemical atoms, towns, electrical terminals or anything that can be connected in pairs. The lines may be chemical bonds, roads, wires or other connections. The main topics of mathematical interest are graphs and digraphs; network flows; block designs; geometry; codes; and mathematical modelling. Application areas covered include communications; structures and mechanisms; electrical networks; transport systems; and computer science. To study this module you should have a sound knowledge of relevant mathematics provided by the appropriate OU level 2 study.

Coding theory free course icon

Science, Maths & Technology 

Coding theory

This module deals with the theory of error-detecting and error-correcting codes. In particular, it investigates their constraints and bounds, and introduces a wide variety of linear and nonlinear codes ? together with associated encoding and decoding procedures. You'll analyse the structure and properties of these codes, investigate links between the theory of error-correcting codes and other mathematical structures, and examine the applicability of codes to real situations. You'll also look at the concepts of optimal and perfect codes, and examine a wide variety of codes, including some constructed from other mathematical structures.

Certificate of Higher Education in Social Care (England) free course icon

 

Certificate of Higher Education in Social Care (England)

Are you thinking about going into social work or social care? This certificate course is the ideal way to find out if it’s the right career for you. It will give you an insight into social work and social care in England (and is also suitable if you live in the Republic of Ireland), starting with up-to-date, authoritative overview of care services – with real-life case studies taking you deep into the experience of giving and receiving care. You’ll also develop your knowledge of the key roles of social work, and learn about the social work standards and codes of practice relevant to each UK nation state. You’ll explore ideas about what social work is – using case studies with children, older people, mental-health communities, disabled children and people with learning disabilities to apply learning to practice contexts. This certificate course also builds key skills in information and communication technologies (ICT), information literacy and reflective writing.

Alan Turing: Life and legacy

To what extent did Alan Turing influence the evolution of modern computing? The 20th Century mathematician is considered by many to be the father of computer science and many would argue that it is largely due to his research that we are able to read this text on a PC, laptop or smart phone. Aside from his contribution to maths and computing however, Turing’s influence impacted on a variety of fields including cryptanalysis and deciphering Nazi codes which helped to end World War 2. This collection examines Turing’s troubled personal life, the significance of his role at Bletchley Park, his ideas on artificial intelligence and finally examines what his legacy should be.
