Teaching, learning and assessment methods
Knowledge and understanding are taught through a range of materials provided to you online – original teaching texts, literature sources, video and audio material, computer spreadsheets and case-studies. These will be assessed through the tutor-marked assignments (TMAs) and end-of-module assessments (EMAs).
Cognitive skills will 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 and EMAs and 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 and EMAs, and completion of learning journals.
Practical and professional skills are taught and assessed through the TMAs and EMAs. The EMAs will play a key part in integrating all these skills.
