Discussion groups and seminar activities will be used in order to support the development of critical skills and the evaluation of research evidence in the sectors in order to stimulate, critical debate, and dialogue. Practical formative assessment methods such as group discussions and student led seminars will create and stimulate critical debate and dialogue.  Key themes and strands across the programme can be embedded within each other.

Reading groups will be formed in order to support reading and research skills, in a shared and informal environment.

Lectures are used to present key themes, ideas and contemporary issues. These are supported by seminars which allow key elements, journal articles and case study material to be examined and explored in detail, to promote further understanding. Workshops and student initiated discussions and debates are included to build responsibility and confidence, encourage a reflective approach, generate new ideas and enhance the learning experience.
