Learning and assessment
The programme is based on a blended learning model. Students are required to engage in self-directed learning, through consulting module study books and online resources before the delivery of the module.
Classroom sessions will allow students to revisit/reinforce their understanding of key theories and ideas, and to analyse and evaluate organisational and situational cases against taught theory. During classroom sessions, students will be expected to undertake personal research, work in groups, manage and coordinate team activities, and develop and communicate solutions based on sound analysis and logical argument using a range of media.
Students will later attend a series of online tutorials, where they will have the opportunity to discuss the specific theories and concepts with their module leader and fellow students.
Each module is assessed individually, using strategies based on the nature of the module's learning outcomes.
Assessment will typically require students to demonstrate an understanding of key managerial theories and concepts, and an ability to apply critically and creatively the various theories and frameworks to organisations and/or case-based scenarios.
All written assignments are submitted for evaluation through Turnitin - a facility within the institutional VLE.
