TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODS Scheduled activitiesIndependent studyPlacementTotal hoursHoursDetailHoursDetailHoursDetail60Workshop / seminar activities240Self study / directed reading / research activities300Total300 The teaching methods for this module are designed to appeal to a range of learning styles and to integrate argument, action and reflection. As such, the format of the sessions combines elements of formal lecturing and various individual/group activities (e.g. discussions, debates, presentations, exercises, role plays, live case study analysis). All students will be expected to prepare thoroughly for each workshop and to conduct self directed/independent study for each theme covered in this module. This is intended to encourage the widest engagement with theoretical aspects of ‘Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Technology Transfer’, as well as stimulating lively and imaginative participation in the practical / commercial aspects of this area. The learning strategy will introduce core concepts, carryout group exercises and respond to case study materials to test ideas and develop relevant individual and line-manager / entrepreneurial skills. Responsibility is placed on students to undertake the necessary reading. Preparation for the workshops is directed in the module guide. However, students are encourage to make an appointment with the module leader to discuss issues / challenges that they face whilst undertaking the module. Normally the delivery pattern for this module will be made up of 60 hours contact time including lectures, workshops, tutor support and plenary sessions. Lecture 20 x 1 hour (every week for 10 weeks) = 20 hours Workshop 20 x 2 hours (every week for 10 weeks) = 40 hours Self-directed study = 240 hours Total = 300 hours ASSESSMENT METHODS (Please ensure that the sequence numbering of the assessments is in the correct chronological order for the module, as this may affect funding.)
