Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
The module will be taught by lectures and tutorials (LO 1-6). Tutorials will involve group activities, case study exercises and student presentations. Tutorial times will also be used to provide guidance on the assessments, through academic writing workshops, exam question practice sessions and reflective writing exercises (LO 1-5).

embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills:
Students will develop their problem-solving, group working, presentation and time management skills. They will practice the skills involved in self-analysis and critical reflection. They will be required to carry out independent research for their tutorials and assignments. The academic writing workshop will develop their researching, analytical and referencing skills.

assessment (formative and summative):
Summative: Students are assessed by a group report and practical activity, and a final exam.
Formative: Students will have time in tutorials to discuss progress on their group work, prior to formal submission. They may also submit a draft of their report for feedback on academic writing style. Students will also have the opportunity to submit an exam answer for feedback.

research/ teaching linkages:
Students will be required to carry out independent research to complete their assessments, and also in preparation for tutorials. They will be guided towards relevant academic sources during lectures. Where members of the teaching team have conducted research in relevant areas, this will be used to inform their teaching.

supporting equality and diversity:
All module materials will be on WebCT, and can be provided in advance if required. A flexible approach will be taken in order to best meet the needs of individual students.

Internationalisation:
International examples will be used in class. Recommended textbooks also provide an international perspective.
