Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
The main student staff interface will be two blocks of lectures (14 hours at the beginning and middle of the module) where the main issues are presented and discussed. Staff will maintain a Moodle presence for the module on which material such as relevant news stories and useful Uniform Resource Identifier(url/i) will be displayed. There are some excellent texts in this area and students will be
encouraged to spend time reading these as well as using other material. The subject is linked to theory and practice and staff will keep up to date by linking their teaching to relevant research. The lectures will be supported by a series of regular tutorials totalling 18 hours (at which employability skills such as presentations, group discussions and problem solving can be developed) to assist students in their learning of this topic. This will enable more discussion to take place and help students fit theory with practice and prepare them for the more research based module in trimester 2. There will be two components of assessment 1) a case study based piece of course work which will test students familiarity and understanding of the finance function in a typical company. This is a formative assessment and will develop research, analytical and communication skills. There will also be a summative end exam to comply with the requirements of the accounting institutes. Many of the concepts of finance have an international orientation and this will be brought out in the presentation of material and the content of the workshops.
