COMPANY: PROCESS AND PERFORMANCE - 2021/2
Module code: THE3038
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.

In this module, students will form companies, each with a clear identity and purpose. They will develop appropriate and inclusive working practices that are grounded in relevant processes from the programme, indicatively: making, thinking, questioning, collaborating and sharing. They will create specific events that are focused towards life and work beyond university, or in further study. In so doing, they will engage a select set of specific practices appropriate to that project, but which are likely to involve mapping existing practice, identifying starting points for a company and project, devising and developing appropriate making practices, working as peer mentors and with peer-mentors, reflecting and rethinking, refining and rehearsing, selecting and focusing, performing and presenting. Companies may work in a range of areas, in discussion with staff and subject to resources. These may, indicatively, include: Performance, Events, and Workshops (e.g. offering training for companies and organisations).

Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to foster a strong sense of independence and self-direction, and mentor the emergence of a self-directed company performance, presentation or workshop. Taught sessions will involve, in the first instance, guidance in the formation of the company or companies; in later stages, tutorials and supervisions allow feedback on the development of company plans and emerging work, sharing and showing sessions allow for testing of emerging practice.
Once established and securely engaged with the module, companies will be allocated a supervisor to respond to their work.
The learning and teaching methods include:
- Orientation sessions
- Company tutorials and supervisions
- Scratch events and work-in-progress showings
- Reflective sessions
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.
