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