The seminar programme is largely built around two related activities – non-assessed case study seminars (which take place in weeks 4-5, 10-11 and 18-19) and assessed presentations (in weeks 6-7, 8-9, 16-17, 20-21 and 22-23). 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 presentation seminars, a group will have been assigned a particular topic (see topics and briefing) and will be making a presentation to the seminar on that topic (and being assessed on it). However, even if you are not presenting there is an expectation of participation – the discussion and Q&A after each presentation will require your engagement.
In each case, materials will be added on an ongoing basis, so you’ll need to check back periodically.
