Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Learning & teaching methods including their alignment to LOs
Each taught input uses a variety of methods including lectures, seminars, tutorials, case studies, in order to foster critical thinking and collaborative student learning. Directed reading and other study tasks encourage more personalised learning, as does the research and preparation required by the module assessment, which empowers students to take responsibility for their own investigation. Audio-visual resources, Industry speakers and visits provide further valuable learning support.

Embedding of employability/PDP/scholarship skills
Four key employability skills are embedded and assessed.
a) Critical analysis and evaluation are assessed in assignments 1 and 2
b) Team-work: students work in groups on a hospitality sector project.
C) Communication - oral and written communication skills are assessed in the report and presentations.
C) IT - students use: 1) the internet, academic and professional databases to gather information and 2) PowerPoint to produce a piece of coursework.

Assessment (formative and summative)
Formative assessment occurs every week within the teaching process at the start of most lecturers with a quiz on last week's material. Summative assessment occurs in weeks 4, 7, 10 and 12, with an a group presentation, individual report, and an exam respectively.

Research/ teaching linkages
All members of the module teaching team undertake scholarly activity relating to the principles and practice of the HTL industries. They also all have close connections with industry. The blend of teaching methods, range of teaching resources, and design of the assessment all foster the exchange and discussion of individual students' knowledge and experience, as well as their research findings, in class throughout the module. Students may use primary research in preparing their presentations and reports.
