Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & Teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
At the beginning of the module the Edinburgh Napier staff member will deliver lectures. Thereafter students 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.

Embedding of employability/PDP/Scholarship Skills
LO 1-6 Practical ‘virtual office hour’ work enhances the acquisition of the key employability skills including IT competences and collaborative learning. Further skill development is facilitated by a Discussion Forum and Chat Room facility in the Moodle presence. This program design supports and enhances information and academic literacy.

Assessment
Assessment will be principally summative through two report covering all Los in the middle and at the end of the module.

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 and diversity
Materials will be available through the VLE and 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 with the student concerned.

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