TEACHING AND LEARNING STRATEGY
As this programme is specially designed for working adults, the teaching – learning and
assessment strategies are based on the principles of “androgogy”anapproachthatishighly suited to
working adults. This approach requires students to be involved in the learning process, draw
from past work experiences to share their views, deal with real life work issues and problems, collaborate with classmates in developing effective solutions and apply whatever they have learnt
into their lives and work environments. The programme is designed to be engaging and
impactful to enable learners to gain the knowledge, practical skills, and abilities for personal growth and development.
The module will be assessed through continuous assessments and final assessment in order to gauge student’s achievement of learning outcomes and to determine the final grade of the module. The
details are as follows:‐
Assessment Types Issue Date Deadline %
Case studies and Presentations In class In class 35%
Quiz In class In class 15%
Assignment In class 4 weeks 50%
The module is assessed though case studies, presentations, participations and assignment(s) in order
to supplement and support student’s learning outcomes and develop the students as a whole. The
assessment strategy is geared towards encouraging students to reflect, analyze and apply what
they have learnt from the module.
Then students will be asked to use either any online content or what was shared in the class to
conceptualize the case. Then by adding their analytical skills, students will answer some
questions related to each case. Students also need to have some discussions in groups and present the final answer of each question to the class.
During the duration of the classes, students may be expected to work in groups to attempt cases
studies, activities or discussion questions during which students will be required to make
presentations which will be assessed based on specific assessment criterion such as body language, intonation, eye contact, facts etc.
Active participation in every class is required. This is to ensure that students are not only attending the class physically but also have the presence of mind and soul.
The final assessment takes the form of an assignment question that is often based on real life issue, organizational problem, or an investigative piece requiring students to review and analyze existing practices and problems in organizations and propose appropriate recommendations.
