Creativity and ability to handle new and changing situations 12. Integration: transferable of knowledge Learning is to be achieved by means of a variety of effective and innovatory strategies appropriate to the level of study. These strategies include, inter alia: formal lectures, structured follow-up sessions, workshops, student-led seminars and tutorials. The use of discussion and analysis of relevant case study material is encouraged. There is an emphasis on vocational learning and the use of workplace materials within the college are encouraged, ensuring both vocational and academic rigor within the delivery and coursework. The role of the MMU Link Tutor is to ensure that development of learning, teaching and assessment strategies are conducted for this programme in line with the University s Learning and Teaching Strategy, e.g. on-line learning, and that the Programme Teams recognise the need for variety to suit the needs of a diverse student cohort. Portfolio development is included as a means of fostering students critical self- awareness. Presentations are also to be used as part of the skills development process. All assignments should utilise the Harvard referencing system and marks are normally not awarded if students fail to utilise the system. The assessment regime has been developed with regard to the University s Statement on Assessment (Quality Assurance Manual Section 18) and the QAA Code of Practice for the Assessment of Students The assessment strategies are designed to provide fitness for purpose for the individual units of study. Assessment of learning outcomes comprises a variety of formative and summative experiences to complement the student learning experiences. It includes, inter alia: the assessment of portfolios, business reports, project work, presentations, case studies and professional role-play for the in-programme assessments. There are written examination papers across the levels of study but not necessarily in all units. Appropriate feedback is provided to students on assessed work in a way that promotes learning and facilitates improvement. In meeting the needs of students for feedback on their progress and attainment all partner institutions shall be required to:

6 Complete feedback within an agreed timescale; Specify the nature and extent of feedback that students can expect in relation to particular types and units of assessment; Use comments effectively on returned work, including relating feedback to assessment criteria, in order to help students identify areas for improvement as well as commending them for evident achievement; Consider the roll of oral feedback, either on a group or individual basis as a means of supplementing written feedback; In a Foundation Degree, the direct involvement of employers in the continuing development, monitoring, and delivery of the Programme is an important aspect of meeting the needs of both the employer and the learner. Employer may be involved in the assessment of learning outcomes as well as providing of a supportive learning environment that enables the student to experience a sufficient range of experiences to fulfil the learning outcomes, particularly the Business Negotiated Units. The possible problems associated with the diversity of student experiences are overcome by comprehensive written guidance to students and individual supervision by tutors and an industrial supervisor or mentor. Although students on this Programme are enrolled by and with a partner institution and are therefore bound by the partner institutions rules, regulations and procedures, all assessment shall be subject to the Regulations for Undergraduate Taught Programmes of Study. All assessments shall be subject to both assessment moderation in which the appropriateness of the proposed assessment mechanism and regime is confirmed and marks moderation, where the performance of students in that assessment is verified. Programme staff from the University shall be responsible for the moderation of assessments. Colleges are expected to use their own rigorous internal verification procedures for the moderation of marks. This is complemented by cross college moderation prior to submission of recommendations to the Examination Board. Transferable skills are taught, developed or nurtured throughout the teaching and learning programme, but primarily in the Graduate Skills Unit. Successful students on the Programme shall have the transferable skills of: The University is committed to an inclusive approach to learning, so that all students, including those with a disability, can become a part of an integrated learning community.
