Tutorials /2547

Most of the tutorials after the initial one (week 2/3), will be structured as case study sessions. 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 tutorial is a requirement – you will be expected to bring a completed worksheet and to have read the key articles. Part of your coursework assessment will be drawn from your participation and engagement in the tutorials.
