Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
At the beginning of the trimester the Edinburgh Napier staff member will deliver a series
of lectures. Thereafter you 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. You are supported by flexible learning
materials which have been developed by the Edinburgh Napier teaching team.

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
and exam question practice sessions (LO 1-6).

You will develop your problem-solving, group working, presentation and time
management skills. You will be required to carry out independent research for tutorials
and assignments. The academic writing workshop will develop your researching,
analytical and referencing skills.

You will be required to carry out independent research to complete your assessments,
and also in preparation for tutorials. You 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.

All module materials will be on Moodle, and can be provided in advance if required. A
flexible approach will be taken in order to best meet incividual needs.

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

for feedback on academic writing style. You will also have the opportunity to submit an
exam answer for feedback.
