Learning And Teaching Strategy

The activities you undertake at the “away day” (towards the beginning of trimester 1) will largely be focused on team development and working with others through practical activity followed by evaluation and reflection. Formal classroom activities will focus on the preparation for and delivery of a series of group presentations in the form of a debate centred on a contemporary issue in management/leadership. Blended learning, utilising material available via the virtual Learning Environment, divided into weekly groupings of material will enable you to prepare for the formal sessions. Additional resources such as links to relevant electronic publications and useful websites are also included. In addition, you are expected to undertake a great deal of guided independent study to ensure you are fully prepared for the formal sessions.
