Methodologies Description
Problem solving Applied learning method in which student is required to use knowledge gained from study to propose a solution to a specific problem, where more than one solution may be possible.
Supervised projects Supervised learning process aimed at helping students to work independently in a range of contexts (academic and professional). Focused primarily on learning ‘how to do things’ and on encouraging students to become responsible for their own learning.
Case study Teaching-learning method in which students are presented with a specific set of real-life circumstances and a problem (‘case’) which they must attempt to understand, assess and solve as a group through a process of discussion. Students should be able to analyse a series of facts relating to a particular area of knowledge or activity, and arrive at a rational conclusion via a process of discussion within small work groups.
Guest lecture / keynote speech Oral presentation (using audiovisual material and student interaction) designed to transmit knowledge and encourage learning. Presentations of this type are variously referred to as ‘expository method’, ‘guest lectures’ or ‘keynote speeches’. (The term ‘keynote’ refers only to a type of speech delivered on special occasions, for which the lecture sets the tone or establishes the underlying theme; it is characterised by its distinctive content, structure and purpose, and relies almost exclusively on the spoken word to communicate its ideas.)
