Mode of study
Half of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images, short audio and video clips, and interactive media. Online materials also include links to online forums and online tutorial rooms. The remaining half is contained in the printed readings for each block.
This module provides a number of learning events delivered as a series of face-to-face tutorials. For each face-to-face tutorial there are equivalent online learning events, which cover the same material. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials/online learning events will help you consolidate your learning.
Working with others
You will be required to work with other students in online forums. Your participation in these forums is assessed. This includes looking at, and commenting on, others’ work, and reflecting on others’ comments on your work.
Diagrams and other visual content
The study materials contain some diagrams and interactive media; descriptions are provided.
You will be required to search for, and make use of, third party material online in a limited number of activities – this forms the basis on one assignment in the module. Alternatives for this material can be provided to enable you to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module.
This module has five Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system. Four of the TMAs make use of supplied case studies, an aspect of one TMA requires you to do some limited research to find a job advert.
You will receive feedback from your tutor on your submitted Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs). This will help you to reflect on your TMA performance. You should refer to it to help you prepare for your next assignment.
