Private studyStudents will be provided with a detailed reading list and a recommended textbook. These readings will correspond to the lectures and aid their understanding of the lectures. Practicals will be used to ensure that students comprehend the learnt technique from lectures. Exercises will be provided during practicals. Students will have to conduct private learning on different topics and programming languages due to the limited time in the lectures and practicals.
Opportunities for Formative FeedbackDuring the lectures, progress will be monitored by in-class exercises and unassessed pop-quizzes. The practical will adopt a more flipped learning approach. In the practical corresponding to the statistical modelling part of the module, computer-based exercises will be used. Students will be required to work individually to apply the models learnt during the lecture to address the marketing problems. Immediate feedback will be provided. Besides, different exercises will be used to supplement how different models could be adopted to solve various marketing issues. Weekly office hours will be available so that students can arrange to drop in outside the main teaching sessions to discuss progress and identify/respond to areas of difficulty. A discussion forum on Minerva will provide another opportunity to monitor students learning the process.
