Teaching/Learning approaches/strategies

The teaching and learning strategy will utilize a variety of learning materials and methods.

The tuition period will include mini lectures, tutorials, case studies and worked examples, problem based learning, simulations and group work which will facilitate understanding of wider perspectives and build peer support opportunities.

This strategy will aim to maximize the achievement of the learning outcomes through a combination of formal input via lectures at the beginning of the module with a shift to facilitate a student centered learning approach as the module progresses. Thus students will be expected to read and research widely on an individual basis and to prepare for classes.
