De******ion of the DD122 Course



السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته ....


DD122 : An Introduction to the Social Sciences: Understanding Social Change


Course content


DD121 is the first part and DD122 the second part of the 60-point course DD100. These courses have been written at a time of change, with feelings of uncertainty at all levels of society. The status of experts and of traditional expert knowledge has been challenged. Can we trust technologies, after our experience of nuclear energy? Can we trust scientists after the BSE affair? Can we trust medical authorities now that diverse sources of information about health care are available to us? Can we trust traditional moralities and religious orthodoxies in an age of scepticism? Can we trust politicians when old ideologies no longer seem able to cope with the dynamics of change?


The intensification of scientific and technical change presents new political and moral dilemmas and opportunities. Intimations of environmental crisis have emerged. The international landscape has been changed by economic and cultural globalization. These changes affect our everyday lives. There are continuities, but established social divisions and identities seem to be fragmenting and reforming. Patterns of paid work and of caring and domestic work are shifting; institutions such as the family, education and welfare have become more diverse. Multiculturalism offers new ways of thinking and of living. Constitutional reform in the UK and changing relationships within the UK and between the UK and the rest of Europe indicate that significant changes have been set in motion. The social sciences are also in flux. Social change, uncertainty and new voices and diversity have rendered many of their most firmly established frameworks of limited value. Social change on this scale demands that those who have been excluded are listened to and that fresh approaches and new systems of explanation are developed.


If these issues concern you, if you want to ask better questions and demand sharper answers of our experts and authorities as well as of yourself, these are the courses for you. The four blocks of DD121 start with crime: how far the crime rate in the UK can be seen to be increasing, and the importance of how crime is represented. What is the evidence, and what explanations can the social sciences offer? The second block is about identity, particularly identities of gender, class and nationality. Are there more uncertainties about this? Do changes in gender roles, social class, ethnic diversity and changes such as devolution in the UK offer more opportunities for people to redefine themselves? The third block looks at the complex relationship between the natural and the social worlds. How can we explain patterns of child development? Is health a medical or a social problem, or both? Are environmental disasters created by nature or by society? The last block looks at patterns of continuity and change in the family, work and the welfare state. Is the family really dead? Are there still jobs for life? Is the welfare state really in crisis?


The four blocks of DD122 start with issues of race and ethnicity. The first block links DD121 to DD122 by using social science debates about race, racism and ethnicity to go over the themes introduced in DD121. The different kinds of evidence used in the social sciences are discussed. The second block looks at globalization and, in particular, at the place of the UK in a changing global context. Is the UK still a sovereign state? Are we more at risk from global problems like climate change and the drug trade? The third block considers knowledge: the status of different kinds of knowledge, and how knowledge is produced in the social sciences. What sort of knowledge counts? Have traditional sources of knowledge been challenged? Is there more uncertainty about what we know? Examples are taken from medicine and health care, religious knowledge and environmental issues. The last block reviews the big debates in the social sciences to do with the three course themes of uncertainty and diversity, structure and agency, and knowledge and knowing – with a particular focus on the development of cities.


The courses offer you two sets of skills that you need to make a start on these debates. They introduce some of the best practice and best ideas in contemporary social science, always related to immediate social concerns, and through a carefully paced programme of ‘learning to learn’ they give you an opportunity to become an independent learner. We take you through all the basic skills that any university-level learner requires (reading, taking notes, writing, organizing your own learning) and that any social science student needs (reading statistics, evaluating evidence, constructing and assessing theoretical arguments). Above all, we hope that the courses will nurture and encourage an attitude to learning, knowledge and study that is confident, reflective, independent and critical. These are skills that will serve you well in the future.


Vocational relevance
DD121 and DD122 lead into further study in the social sciences that could open up employment opportunities in business, banking, insurance, education, health professions, administration, law, social services, voluntary and campaigning organizations, the media, public relations, public service organizations and government (national and local), planning and environmental management, the criminal justice system and social welfare organizations. The courses build a strong basis of vocationally oriented skills that are transferable to the job market: clarity of written communication; critical thinking; ability to analyse, reflect on and present arguments, evidence and theories; problem solving; evaluating issues; time management; self-motivation; and basic numerical skills.

Thank you very much for the information Miss Leyan

I used the link you provided and noticed that there are no examinations for this course only 4 TMAs

This is a quote from that link: "Assessment
There are four tutor-marked assignments (TMAs). There is no examination."o

Does this apply to the AOU DD122 also
?

Hello sister

There are four TMA's for the DD122
Two TMA's for Part 1
And two TMA's for Part 2
And there is a midterm and a final exam

But i think that they mean that there are no quizes for this subject

Wish you all the luck
