Modes of Teaching, Learning and Assessment and how these contribute to
the learning outcomes of the module
- The module is delivered via online learning, divided up into study weeks with specially produced resources within each week. Resources vary according to the learning outcomes but normally include: video content, directed reading, reflective activities, opportunities for self-assessment and peer-to-peer learning within tutor-facilitated discussions.
- The formative assessment serves to encourage students to study regularly and to monitor their learning progress. Tutors provide feedback on formative work and are available for individual consultation as necessary (usually by email and Skype).
- The summative assessment is designed to test students' understanding of relevant concepts and their ability to apply what they have learned through critical analysis of a particular organisation, focusing on the role of the individual, the organisation and the entrepreneurial task environment. The emphasis throughout will be on integrating theory with practice.
