Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
A participative approach is adopted in lectures, tutorials and case studies with students being encouraged to interact within groups and with the module leader.
A class test in week 10 is very useful; it enables the students to concentrate on their studies (LOs 1 to 3). The revision for the class test helps them towards the preparation of their final examination and enables them to continue the revision work right up to the final exam in weeks 14 and 15 (LOs 1 to 5). Also, the feedback on the performance in the class test helps in motivating good students to continue to make high achievements; the weaker students get the opportunity to improve on their weaknesses.
Students are continually advised to approach the module leader for help, as and when required. Extra help is available to weaker students and those who miss lectures occasionally.

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
The module helps the students in building up their confidence through feedback on a regular basis. Continued interaction with the lecturer and peers helps them improve their teaching and learning skills. These skills will help them with employment and future career developments.

Research / teaching linkages
The module leader is an active researcher and ensures that he is up-to-date with the latest developments in his subject area. This gives him the opportunity to share his knowledge with the students, where applicable and as appropriate to the module learning outcomes.

Formative Assessment:
Class tutorials provide the opportunity for formative feedback and assessment.

Summative Assessment:
Assessment will be by examination (LOs 1 to 5) and class test (LOS 1 to 3).Additionally, the class test serves both as formative and summative assessment.
