Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to provide a variety of learning and teaching methods which fit with the overall aims & strategy of the programme and are appropriate to the study of professional production management.
There is a balance of individual work and of tutor lead and student lead sessions.
The strategy should encourage individual learning, questioning, analysis and reflection as well as enabling students to develop skills in research, communication, planning and negotiation.
The learning and teaching methods include:
• Lectures (will be available online for students on placement)
• Seminars (will be available online for students on placement)
• Independent study
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.
