The approach is to emphasize that Quantum Field Theory is first and foremost a tool for performing practical calculations. I will emphasize the physical problems which have driven the development of the field, and to show how they can be solved.

All particles in the standard model correspond to some field in a quantum field theory. Our task is to understand how this works, how to describe interactions of these particles using quantum field theory, and how to compute various processes.
