Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to:
Provide the students with a realistic environment working alongside industry professionals enabling them to acquire practical skills in the use of tools, equipment and raw materials together with an understanding of health and safety issues. Teaching also provides an environment where students can understand restaurant service and production both as individuals and in teams.
Tutorials and lectures provide the underpinning knowledge in technical aspects of the programme.
The practical classes develop students’ skills from the first semester and the group lunch service project includes management of people and resources.
A weekly lecture covers academic aspects of restaurant operations.
SurreyLearn will be used for discussion about operational aspects of the work environment.
The learning and teaching methods include:
- Practical classes 4 hours per week X 11 weeks (44)
- Tutorial 1 hour per week X 11 weeks (11)
- Lecture 1hour per week X 11 (11)
- Workshop 1 hour per week X 8 weeks (8)
Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
