Methods of Teaching / Learning
The learning and teaching strategy is designed to enable students to gain an understanding of various core marketing concepts and theories, and their applications within the fashion and luxury industries, from equally the consumer’s and the retailer’s perspectives.
The teaching and learning methods are based on the delivery of lectures and related seminars. Lectures are designed to illustrate and explain theoretical concepts or models; seminars aim to illuminate the applications of theoretical concepts or models in operating a fashion business with reference to a range of historical and contemporary cases.
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.
