The course will be taught over four consecutive 7-hour days on a Tuesday.
Teaching and learning will take place via a mix of lectures, group activities and discussions, allowing you to examine the issues in more detail. This provides you with both teacher and peer-led input, promoting discussion and developing communication and group working skills. You will work in small groups on real-world data and case studies.
Teaching is supplemented by self-directed study which allows you both to gain a deeper understanding of the subject generally, and to pursue topics which are of particular interest to you in greater detail.
Teaching and learning are facilitated by Moodle, the University’s online Virtual Learning Environment.
You will be assessed through a written commissioning case study of 4,000 words, with a pass mark of 50%. Opportunities for feedback will be available through the course lecturers. Passing the course will gain you 15 credits at level 7 (M level)
On completion, students will receive 15 credits towards their programme, or, if taken as a stand-alone CPD course, proof of completion and credits obtained.
This course is worth 15 credits toward eligible programmes.
