General Information and Guidance

Access to Tutors
Ann Master son will deliver this module. One of the tutor’s tasks is to support you in your studies and this goes beyond classroom contact. Staff are available outside normal class time, with contact details provided on the front cover sheet of this handbook.

Modes of Learning
In order to derive the maximum benefit from the various sessions, it is important to be aware of their structure and to develop a personal strategy for each approach. You need to understand that you are not a passive participant or consumer of what your lecturer delivers, but rather an active and critical participant in your own learning and development. While staff are here to support your learning, this programme is at postgraduate level and from the start of the module, you will be expected to show a degree of independence and initiative in directing your own learning.

Sessions are likely to comprise of mini lectures, group work and presentations, case study and practical exercises. Group work is a particularly rich medium in which to extend your learning and one in which issues and problems that others face in their own departments are shared.

The module will be delivered in three-hour blocks which will include lecturer input, group and individual exercises. Participative methods are used to create an active learning experience. The three main methods are: * Discussion – to enable ideas and opinions to be freely exchanged * Group activities – students undertake a particular task leading to a required outcome * Written case studies – to provide a common vicarious organisational experience.

The nature of the subject matter is such that you will benefit from the opportunity of sharing information and experiences with your peers.
