Learning and Teaching
During the classroom sessions you will investigate a number of aspects of leadership within projects. You will have two opportunities to practise your new understanding of leadership by leading a team during class activities. Students will also be invited to discuss and evaluate their existing leadership skills. The module content will be provided though lecture/seminars supported by on-line content.
Coursework and Assessment
To award credits we need to have evidence of the knowledge and skills you have gained or improved. Some of this has to be in a form that can be shown to external examiners so that we can be absolutely sure that standards are met across all courses and subjects.
You will not have formal examinations but you may have class tests. You may be asked to write assignments, keep a course journal or put together a portfolio. Our assessments are flexible to suit the course and the student.
The most important element of assessment is that it should enhance your learning. Our methods are designed to increase your confidence and we try very hard to devise ways of assessing you that are enjoyable and suitable for adults with busy lives.
