Method of teaching and learning 
The teaching philosophy of the module follows very much the philosophy of Syntegrative Education. This has meant that the teaching delivery pattern, which follows more intensive block teaching, allows more meaningful contribution from industry partners. This philosophy is carried through also in terms of assessment, with reduction on the use of exams and increase in coursework, especially problem-based assessments that are project focused. The delivery pattern provides space in the semester for students to concentrate on completing the assessments.

International case studies will be used, drawn from the set text to put the use of IT systems in an international context.

• Additional material will be in the form of web-based reading and research, selected texts, journal articles and contemporary magazines and press articles.

• Independent research and study will be encouraged.

• Students will be exposed to case studies on a range of organisations.
