The teaching and learning approach of the course is through blended learning, i.e. a combination of pedagogic approaches including using the latest approaches to learning technology, action learning, and independent learning. Teaching is delivered mostly in lectures, seminars and tutorials, however, you will also spend great deal of your time in small groups discussing case studies, simulation exercises, preparing for assessments and working on presentations.
