Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
At the beginning of the module an Edinburgh Napier staff member will deliver 15 hrs of lectures. Thereafter you will be supported by a Local Tutor who will deliver 15 hrs of tutorials which have been developed by the Module Leader. You will be supported by a Student Study Guide, which outlines the module aims and outcomes, lecture content, tutorial exercises, and assessment guidance. You will also be directed to a core textbook, and receive a copy of the Lecture PPT slides via the VLE. You will be able to access relevant electronic resources to support your learning through our Distance Learning Library service.

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
The teaching style and mix of activities will encourage you to develop managerial skills of working in groups, communication, information retrieval and analysis, and critical thinking. Scholarship skills are supported through applying the appropriate writing style, referencing and synthesis of information from a variety of sources.

Assessment
Formative assessment is provided in tutorials. Summative assessment takes the form of an essay and an examination.

Research / teaching linkages
Research skills are developed in the preparation of materials for the online discussions where you will be required to source, analyse and present information. This is reinforced through the summative assessments in which the report draws on your information retrieval and analysis skills.

Supporting equality & diversity
Materials will be available through the VLE. You can format these in a style that best matches your needs. Where additional special needs support is required this will be organised on an individual basis directly with you.

Internationalisation
Materials reference international examples and case studies of international organisations. Class discussion will draw upon the international perspectives from the diverse student body.
