Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods & their alignment to LOs:
The Entrepreneurship group’s strategy is one of offering learning for and through entrepreneurship. This involves students utilising academic models and frameworks and applying them to practical business scenarios. Extensive use will be made of case studies, simulation games, and local context to enrich the students learning experience. Aspects considered important in designing the learning materials include;
- module aims and learning outcomes
- clear and early communication of assessment strategies
- module content that gives students opportunities to build confidence and communicate that confidence.
- strategies that encourage the students’ capacity to look at the overall process and not look at the individual components (workshops) in isolation.

The teaching method allows students to engage in the subject fully by encouraging a two-way dialogue between students and tutors. Provision is made for tutor/peer feedback and comments via the first assessment (LO1&2). Students also work with an organisation, in a group of five to carry out an innovation audit, producing evidence for their final assignment (LO3&4) via observation, interviews and group discussions in class.
The first assessment students will complete is a presentation on the Innovation and Creativity in the business of their choice. The second assessment is a detailed audit, of the innovation management process within a chosen organisation.

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills:
The assessment strategy for the module will develop students’ organisation skills, their critical analysis and reflective skills and other employability skills such as digital literacy skills.


Formative Assessment:
Ongoing formative assessment on project progress will be given during tutorials.

Summative Assessment:
Assessment will be completed in groups of five. Assessment is by a number of means including: presentation (10 minutes), and the completion of a 4,000 word written report.
