Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
At the beginning of the trimester the Edinburgh Napier staff member will deliver a series of lectures. Thereafter students will be supported by a Local Tutor who will deliver a series of tutorials which have been developed by the module leader - where appropriate the Local Tutor provides the local context/examples etc. Students are supported by flexible learning materials which have been developed by the Edinburgh Napier teaching team. They receive a Student Study Guide which outlines the module aims, outcomes, lecture content, details tutorial exercises and provides assessment guidance, and are directed to a recommended core textbook. They will also receive a copy of the Lecture PPT slides (normally on CD-Rom). Edinburgh Napier Distance Learning Library services is also available to students to access relevant electronic resources to support their learning. Local Tutors are also provided with a Guide which sets out their role and instructions for tutorials and assessment guidance.

Employability: Group discussions in tutorial improves the communication skills of the student. The coursework will improve their analytical abilities and the examination incorporates the need for time management skills.
Assessment: Formative assessment takes place in the tutorials and in the students home environment where student can work on past exam papers for which solution are provided. Summative assessment requires each student to complete a prescribed business analysis of a quoted company. In the first tutorial learning groups will be set up and students will be encouraged to work in their groups to help each other with assessment 1. For practical reasons of access to company web sites and the relevant stock market prices the firms analysed will be Singapore based. However the skills acquired will be transferable to an international situation. The final exam will be based on mini business senarios and will cover all learning outcomes of the module.
