Approach to learning and assessment

The learning and teaching approaches you will experience in this program may include, but are not limited to:

Classroom teaching:  May include lectures, guest lectures, panels, tutorials, class presentations, group discussions, student-led discussions, role-plays, etc.  This style of learning is designed to maximise your understanding of the curriculum content and develop appropriate skills. Classroom teaching is designed to provide an environment where you can ask questions and seek feedback as well as contribute to class discussion and apply theory to practice.

Problem-based learning:  You may work in a team or individually to conduct research, solve problems, analyse and respond to case studies, prepare or respond to briefs, write original research or case study reports, or participate in managing a company in a computer-based business simulation.  This technique is designed to simulate the experiences you will encounter working in accountancy.

Flexible delivery:  The program will incorporate extensive use of online resources.  These may include learning resources such as lecture notes, and assessment and feedback tools such as discussion boards and quizzes.

Assignments and projects:  These may be either research or problem based, and may be undertaken in teams or individually.  They will provide you with experience at undertaking research and writing effectively to present your findings and recommendations to a range of audiences.  Assignments and projects are also designed to develop your abilities in communications, research and reasoning, and provide a way to receive feedback on your skills development.  By utilising this feedback to improve your skills and further develop your capabilities in relevant areas you will develop as a life-long learner.

In-class tests:  Provide you with feedback on your early understanding within a course and allow feedback to assist you in further developing your skills and abilities.

Formal examinations:  Will provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate your understanding and application of marketing and business principles to either practical or theoretical issues.
