The seminar programme is largely built around two related activities – non-assessed case study seminars (which take place in weeks 4-5, 7-8, 15-16, 17-18, 19-20 and 24-25) and assessment-related sessions (in weeks 2-3, 9-10, 22-23 and 26-27). Both aspects will require participation and engagement.
For the case study seminars, a worksheet with a set of discussion questions will be provided for each session on the site, along with guided reading. Preparation BEFORE the seminar is a requirement – you will be expected to bring a completed worksheet and to have read the key articles. If you have not done so, you will be sent out of the seminar, as the activities within the session are dependent upon your prior preparation.
For the assessment-related sessions, there will generally be a briefing about the particular assessment component. It will not generally require preparation before the session, with the exception of the w22-23 sessions which involve group presentations about the group project.
