Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
LO’s 1-5 will be taught through the use of lectures, tutorials, case studies, guest lecturers and practical exercises. Technology is linked to the Moodle page – through embedded videos and social media.

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
LO’s – group presentations and practice based learning activity work will aid the development of team work, presentation skills and time management skills as these are key employability skills. Students are encouraged to share their own experiences of theory into practice in order to develop skills in reflective learning and critical analysis. The coursework links to all learning outcomes as students will have to apply theoretical constructs to practical situations, given the practice based development of theory in this subject.

Assessment (formative or summative)
There will be three assessments. The first assessment is for a group presentation which takes place during tutorials. Formative feedback is provided which students can take forward into coursework for this module, as well as other courses and the job market. The second assessment is an individual report based on a practice based learning activity. The third piece of work is a supervised summative assessment.

Research / teaching linkages
The module leader previously worked in senior roles in manufacturing before joining the university and is also researching in the public sector so the module is heavily driven by practice.

Supporting equality and diversity
Module content is broad based and applicable to a range of organisations. Students will have the ability to contribute in class room and on-line mediums. A range of teaching mediums are used to support different learning preferences. Disabled students will have appropriate adjustments made to enable them to participate fully.
