Module Delivery 

Learning Strategy

In order to help you best prepare you for level 7 study and the working world, the teaching style for this module will be somewhat different to what you have experienced during your time at Teesside University Business School. Your timetable highlights two, 2 hour lectures equating to 4 hours per week. Given the diverse expertise of the teaching team, teaching styles vary therefore every week will be different.

The teaching philosophy adopted for this module will follow this simple model:

The first part of the session will be lecture led ‘Input’ through which you will have the opportunity to challenge your own thinking about key theoretical terms, ideas and concepts.  You will be expected to take ‘Action’ and apply new and existing knowledge to a specific scenario using a learning style that suits your individual leaning needs. Finally, the ‘Reflection’ stage will allow you to make sense of emerging themes, reflect and provide solutions to contemporary issues in business management.
