THEORETICAL FOUNDATIONS IN MANAGEMENT EDUCATION - 2021/2
Module code: MANM409
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic the University has revised its courses to incorporate the ‘Hybrid Learning Experience’ in a departure from previous academic years and previously published information. The University has changed the delivery (and in some cases the content) of its programmes. Further information on the general principles of hybrid learning can be found at: Hybrid learning experience | University of Surrey.
We have updated key module information regarding the pattern of assessment and overall student workload to inform student module choices. We are currently working on bringing remaining published information up to date to reflect current practice in time for the start of the academic year 2021/22.
This means that some information within the programme and module catalogue will be subject to change. Current students are invited to contact their Programme Leader or Academic Hive with any questions relating to the information available.
Theoretical Foundations in Management Education gives an overview of learning and teaching approaches used in Management Education. This includes more widely used concepts of learning and teaching in higher education but particularly relevant to business management education. In addition, learning and teaching approaches are discussed in relation to philosophical topics in management education and subject specific theories.

The assessment strategy is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of the relevant subject, link concepts and critically evaluate information and their own learning. The assessment strategy focuses on how learning objectives were met and outcomes achieved.
Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of:
Provocation for Debate (10 min.) and 1 page max with references 80%
Reflective account (5 min, 20%) – Students should reflect on how the learned content informed their understanding of management education and in particular towards developing their own teaching philosophy throughout their studies.
Feedback will be provided online via the virtual learning environment and face-to-face during personal learning consultations. Feedback will be given to any summative assessments. Due to the structure of the programme students will receive feedback about their successful completion of each module at least 3 days before starting the new module. Thus, a maximum of a 10 day turn around for assessments can be expected.

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to:
Enable students to independently inquire theory, concepts and different learning approaches and be reflective in their learning. The virtual learning environment supports the learning journey and each student is allocated a personal learning coach. PLCs are crucial for students to achieve the learning outcomes of reflection and prospection and develop a personal educational philosophy.
The learning and teaching methods include:
- learning online using a range of materials from journals, to ebooks and multi media materials. This is part of the online learning and engagement hours element. Students are expected to engage with set activities online on a regular basis and gather information independently to complete these using the resources and facilities provided. Engagement with SurreyLearn is therefore key as well as keeping an ongoing learning diary, which can be uploaded to SurreyLearn.
- Personal learning advisor to support academic learning for practitioners through coaching in order to develop reflective and prospective thinking skills further.
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.
