Modes of Teaching, Learning and Assessment and how these contribute to
the learning outcomes of the module
- Lecture sessions: theory will be outlined together with the relevant research evidence to enable a critical and evidenced-based approach. Seminars will take the form of tutorials and site visits designed to facilitate students to reflect on and apply the knowledge gained of green legislation to real-life cases and industrial companies.
- These themes will be explored through a variety of media including videos, written cases and practical exercises. In this way each student will be challenged to apply the theoretical and evidence-based material from lectures and also gain an appreciation of the tools and techniques commonly used by leaders and followers.
- The summative written assignment (which will be topic or case based) will test studentsâ€™ theoretical understanding, their knowledge of relevant evidence, and their ability to apply these to contemporary settings
