Teaching and Learning Methods:

7 The aim and objectives of your course will be achieved in a variety of ways through the application of a range of teaching and learning methods across all modules. The principal methods are detailed below. Lectures Lectures are the traditional form of communication between the lecturer and the students. However, it must be noted that the term lecture is interpreted in a wider sense with an emphasis on encouraging two-way communication. Handouts, worked examples, overhead projector presentations and videos are used, but a range of student/group activities is also incorporated to encourage student participation. Similarly, the lectures are structured in such a way as to stimulate and guide further reading and other student activity and to relate to the seminar situations. As the course progresses, the traditional teaching and learning mechanism is incrementally reduced in favour of more participative and student-led systems. Please note: Lectures are not designed to spoon-feed facts nor are seminars an opportunity to repeat lectures. Rather, as you are reading for your qualification, you should read widely on the topics covered in each module. This allows you to acquire knowledge while at the same time developing skills in information gathering and time management. Laboratory / Practical Classes The objectives of laboratory/practical classes are to develop subject specific skills, reinforce and validate material exposed in lectures, simulate working environments, synthesise knowledge and provide opportunities for innovation. The Department has a strong commitment to providing realistic work experiences and various simulated exercises are included in the laboratory and practical sessions. Seminars Seminars are organized for groups of students, under staff supervision. Here the emphasis is on student participation and initiation, with the overall aim of developing independent learning abilities. Each group of students can therefore, consolidate the knowledge gained through lectures and independent study, develop their problem solving and analytical skills and play a more active role in the teaching/learning effort. As the course develops, seminars become a more important teaching/learning vehicle in order to encourage independent and self centred learning and to develop abilities, attributes and competencies which students will use in their managerial positions. These include the transferable skills of communication, leadership, negotiation, group dynamics and self presentation. The seminars also feature case studies and some role-play. Case Studies Case studies of increasing complexity are used within the course. They develop an understanding of the nature and skills of logical reasoning, a capacity for creative thinking and problem solving and a facility for the enhancement of effective communication and interpersonal relations. Many of those in use have been developed by staff, based on previous industrial and/or research experiences. The main aims underlying this learning/teaching mechanism are to allow students to develop powers of analysis and evaluation in defining problems, formulating and implementing solutions and assessing their impact in relation to either the organization(s) or to the consumer(s) involved. Tutorials

8 Tutorials may be conducted on a small group or more usually, on an individual basis. They are used to assist those who are experiencing learning difficulties, and to assist and advise in preparation for the honours dissertation, curriculum projects, assignments and other investigations. Workshops Workshops are forums for open discussion. Students will research aspects of a given topic or case study and will discuss their findings with their peers in the workshops. They also provide a practical vehicle upon which certain theoretical perspectives can be applied, tested and evaluated. Guest Speakers Guest speakers will be invited to present on a range of issues within particular modules. This exposes students to a wider set of issues and will give you the opportunity to apply your studies in a broader context. Assessment Methods: The role of assessment is of major importance in the totality of a student s educational experiences. For that reason, considerable thought and effort has been given to ensuring that the assessment requirements built into each module specification are appropriate to the particular qualities and abilities being assessed. A wide range of alternatives to the traditional essay and an exam have been introduced, including for example, group presentations, practical simulations and the preparation of portfolios. The learning, teaching and assessment methods for each module are given in the module descriptions.

12 SECTION B1 12 STRUCTURE AND REQUIREMENTS FOR THE AWARD The course is delivered over six semesters spread over three years of full-time study. After successful completion of year-two there is the option of a year on industrial placement or studying abroad, extending the duration to four years; completion of either of these years can lead to either an honours degree with Diploma in Industrial Studies or honours degree with Diploma in Area Studies respectively. The placement options aim to provide full-time students with the opportunity to enhance their understanding of the world of work, and to apply/develop personal and interpersonal skills. The programme conforms to the University s modular requirements. An accumulation of 120 credit points is required to complete each level of the course. A number of prerequisite modules are built in to the programme structure to ensure the academic coherence of the course. Progression between semester 1 and semester 2 is automatic and progression from year to year is determined according to current University Regulations for undergraduate programmes. In both year-one and year-two all modules are compulsory. In year one all modules are of 20-credit point value each. The level four menu of six compulsory modules, common to other undergraduate programmes within the Department of Business and Enterprise, facilitates student transfer between business degree courses within the School. In year-two there are five 20-credit point modules and two 10-credit point modules, Management Information Systems and Professional and Personal Effectiveness. In final-year there are four 20-credit point compulsory modules allowing the selection of one 20-credit point module in each semester. Further details are provided in the tables following this section. Across levels four and five, through compulsory modules, a range of core business and management subjects are introduced, providing knowledge and understanding of the general business environment within which business decisions are made. Providing broad coverage of the QAA Business and Management benchmark themes and necessary skills for professional life on completion of the qualification. The 6 compulsory modules at level 4 offer students initial exposure to subjects offered in year-two and final-year and form a sound foundation from which to proceed into year-two. Modules at level 4 will provide: a foundation for understanding upon which financial systems are based; basic economic concepts and principles and their applications to the economic concepts and principles and their applications to the economic problem of resource allocation and the operation of markets; an introduction to the key areas of organisational behaviour and management and a framework for understanding and analysing organisations and the role of management of people and operations in an organisational setting; guidance in day-to-day tasks of number handling and manipulating numbers and converting them into useful information; consideration of the structure within which businesses identify customers needs and wants, determine which markets to target and design an appropriate approach to serve those chosen markets; an understanding of the skills necessary to progress a learning experience and the need for lifelong learning.

13 SECTION B1 At level 5 completion of a set of compulsory modules allows students the opportunity to consolidate and extend their knowledge and understanding, beyond modules taken at level 4, in areas such as accounting practices, marketing, information systems and management of people, organisations and operations within the context of the global external environment. Level 5 helps ready students for professional life whether immediately if going on industrial placement or on graduation. Level 5 seeks to move students from the factual and a conceptual knowledge base of level 4 to a more detailed knowledge of business while widening a student s perspective in a variety of ideas, contexts and frameworks. The structure of both levels 4 and 5 have been designed to encapsulate the three basic tenets of a business management programme as defined in the subject benchmark statement for General Business and Management (2007) and help provide internal coherence throughout the programme: study of organisations, their management and the changing external environment in which they operate; preparation for and development of a career in business and management; enhancement of lifelong learning skills and personal development to contribute to society at large. At level 6 students will have the opportunity to further consolidate and extend their knowledge and understanding of the management of organisations while exploring ethical issues. Level 6 allows students to build on the knowledge and skills provided at levels 4 and 5 as well as providing the chance to develop in areas of interest through a choice of an option module in each semester - to both staff, in either research or academic enterprise, and students, for example in entrepreneurship, managing of people, marketing, finance and issues in management. In the final year students will be completing major projects, both group-based and individual, where students will be selecting a problem area within the context of the module and then undertaking an extensive search for relevant information and data, applying appropriate techniques to analyse the problem. These projects will give students the opportunity to synthesise knowledge and skills gained from across their degree, while in preparation for future professional life demonstrating independence and selfawareness. The tables below illustrate the interrelationships and academic progression between levels and modules of the programme. The language of instruction is English.
