Teaching, learning and assessment methods
Knowledge and understanding are taught through the online and print resources – original teaching text, literature sources, audio and video material, computer models and case studies. These are assessed through the tutor-marked assignments (TMAs), end-of-module assessments (EMAs) and examinations.
Cognitive skills are be taught using bespoke online and print materials, examples from the literature and cases studies from industry, commerce and the third sector.
Summative assessment will be through the TMAs, EMAs and examinations. Formative self-assessment will be provided through exercises, examples and self-assessment questions (SAQs).
Key skills are taught by the study materials and case study examples, SAQs and activities, with support from TMA tutor feedback. They are assessed through TMAs, EMAs, examinations and completion of learning journals.
Practical and professional skills are taught and assessed through the TMAs, EMAs and examinations. The EMAs and examinations will play a key part in integrating all these skills.
