Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
Teaching comprises a blend of lectures, tutorials and laboratory sessions that cover all learning outcomes. The lectures are used to present a range of theoretical and systems concepts in a business context (LOs 1, 3).

Practicals include exposure to a range of packages, for example, a business simulation game. Working in groups, the students will consolidate the theory of business organisations from an Information Systems perspective and put this into practice. Regular presentation sessions will encourage students to extract and present technical data in a number of formats and using a range of techniques (LOs 2, 3).

Assessment (formative or summative)
Assessment of the practical element is by group presentations, incorporating extraction of data and presentation using a number of software applications (LO2). Assessment of material on business organisations, information systems theory and concepts, the main business information systems and an introduction to the roles and responsibilities in the IS sector is by 1 hour class test (LOs 1, 3).
