7 Teaching and Learning HOW WILL I BE TAUGHT AND ASSESSED? Teaching and learning strategies used to deliver this curriculum are designed to provide a critical view of best practice set into the context of the latest theories, models and frameworks, as well as in an international and vocational context. They are designed to develop the critical and innovatory abilities of the participants. The methods of teaching and learning used will vary according to the nature of the subject matter but will have a wide diversity from lectures to student centred activities including seminars, case studies, management games, group work, learning sets, simulations, learning support material, empirical and desk based research. We recognise that different people learn in different ways and utilise a range of different teaching methods and situations, for example, lectures, guest lectures, tutorials, seminars, workshops, case studies, project work, role-plays and virtual learning environments to supplement the modules. In all classes, emphasis will be placed on active, experiential learning, including lectures which encourage active participation from students. The key tactic used on the MSc programmes is Learning Teams. These are introduced at the induction stage and progressed throughout the programme, culminating in teams working effectively together on a practice based simulation module in fund management. Therefore, the Learning Teams become Fund Managers. Each team will manage an on-line 100 million portfolio of investments as part of the Investment Game module. This module will develop your transferable skills whilst bonding together as learners. Many students are used to a higher powerdistance relationship between students and staff in their previous study, so this link hastens educational-cultural adjustment. Significant emphasis will be placed on the personal and skills development experience through presentations, role-play and personal reflective exercises. Portfolio investing teams will be organised in order to practice decision making for investing purposes over the course of the study of the simulation of portfolio investing module. These teams are organised to represent diverse cultural and gender backgrounds to encourage you to be independent learners within a team framework. This prepares you for the fully independent learning phase when you undertake personal research, guided by your dissertation supervisor. Directed study supports and builds upon the knowledge and skills learnt in class to provide a fuller understanding of the subject. Personal and module tutors are on hand to provide support to you to discuss any queries, for advice on plans, etc. The curriculum is structured so that skills and knowledge developed in core modules can be transferred, re-applied and further developed. The Personal tutorial system and the continuous emphasis on PDP ensure that you are constantly reflecting upon, adapting and enhancing your learning. The VLE plays a key role in ensuring communication is maintained and direction is provided to ensure a depth and breadth of learning which complements and enhances the direct contact experiences. All modules have VLE presence, and many are adapted to provide groups of students with a series of online learning and assessment packages, including videos, formative tests, questionnaires and direction to potential websites for individual learning. 7

8 Assessment This is led by professional-based assessment guidelines and QAA benchmark standards list Skills for all Masters programmes. In essence, these are a demonstrable range of appropriate cognitive, critical and intellectual skills, research skills, and relevant personal and interpersonal skills. They are designed to prepare participants for professional practise, so graduates should be able to demonstrate these professional competences. Assessment types A wide variety of both formative and summative assessment vehicles facilitates testing of the Learning Outcomes. Methods include presentations, individual and team projects, individual reports, debates and examinations. Assessment methods vary between modules but the overall strategy is to have a balanced set of assessments across a variety of methods that will include examinations, assignments, group and/or individual presentation, open analysis cases, portfolios, projects and dissertations. The above provides an overview of the types of teaching, learning and assessment which will be utilised to enable you to achieve your full potential and demonstrate the outcomes of the programmes.
