MANAGING ORGANISATIONS AND HUMAN RESOURCES - 2021/2
Module code: MAN2112
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, and in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information, the University has had to change the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes, together with certain University services and facilities for the academic year 2020/21.
These changes include the implementation of a hybrid teaching approach during 2020/21. Detailed information on all changes is available at: https://www.surrey.ac.uk/coronavirus/course-changes. This webpage sets out information relating to general University changes, and will also direct you to consider additional specific information relating to your chosen programme.

The module introduces students to the principles of organisational behaviour and human resource management. It encourages them to identify the relevance of these principles for practice in different sectors. In particular, it will focus on the ways in which an understanding of human behaviour can help in the management of others and self. It will examine fundamental individual and group processes and the ways in which these inform the policies and practices of people management.

Overall student workload

Independent Study Hours: 120
Lecture Hours: 22
Methods of Teaching / Learning
The module will be delivered through a weekly 2 hour lecture and 4 2 hour workshops and a further interactive workshop via SurreyLearn.
Lectures will be made as interactive as possible and learning will be reinforced and developed through a critical perspective, focusing particularly on the application of theoretical knowledge to practice. The workshops will be used to prepare students for their assessment and will include the development of critical thinking and in-depth research skills. Opportunities to reflect upon their own behaviour and understanding of OBHR will also be provided via a problem-based, student centred approach to teaching and learning.
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.
