Learning and Teaching

The module has been designed to accommodate a range of different learning styles and to engage individuals actively in the learning process. The module works with the learners own experiences, it is participative, interactive and uses small group work.

Study time

What commitment do I have to make?

We would recommend approximately 150 hours including taught sessions and personal study time to complete the module and assessment. This is only a guideline and will depend highly on the participants learning abilities.

The assessment submission date will be set approximately six weeks after the last taught session. Unfortunately, it is not possible to extend this deadline once you have registered for the module. However, if for an unexpected reason you are unable to submit, the University does have an extenuating circumstances policy.

Assessment

As part of this module, you will be required to complete the following assessment by the set deadline:

  • Case study on change leadership practice
  • Critical reflections on case study

On successful completion of this assessment you will receive an overall module mark. This module may then be used towards a selection of our Master's level programmes.
