Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
?16. LTA approach
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
The module is taught in a series of lectures, tutorial activities and directed self managed study. These give definitions, examples and enable to students to develop insight into the phenomena of sport event management. Support and guidelines for effective group work are presented to the students and supported with discussion facilities available through either the module webct learning platform.

Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills:
LOs require students to read, research (directed paper based and web based publications and approved databases) and give both a presentation (oral) and a written report. Oral presentation skills and written presentation skills will be extended through the assessment. In collecting, evaluating and summarising relevant information for the second assessment students also have the opportunity to extend their enterpreneurial skills.

Assessment (formative and summative)
The first assignment is a 50% 2,500 (max 2,750) word group report that encourages the analysis of stakeholders of events and sport event impacts. The second is a portfolio incorporating selective market research literature and a 50% 2,500 (max 2,750) word sport event business plan.
