MSP200R – Public Relations Theory
Number of Students: 30
Day, Time and Location: Friday, 09:00 – 12:00, Talbot 45
This teaching block, Sian is offering the majority of the taught sessions of her MSP200R module, Public Relations Theory, as she feels they all fairly well illustrate her approach.
The aim with the class is to use a technique for managing sessions using interactive and small group work. As a result, the session essentially runs as small class teaching within a larger class setting and utilises multiple instances of small group breakout work, discussion and questioning to facilitate this.
Teaching methods used:
- Active Learning
- Audience Participation
- Authentic Assessment
- Formative Assessment
- Group Work
