Abstract

The following case study is an analysis of a Level 6 course, on the BA Events Management programme. It explores the effectiveness of group projects as a learning tool, the teaching strategies employed on this course and the assessment process currently in place. The course is designed to synthesize all elements of the programme in order to allow students to reflect upon and develop earlier theoretical learning and to encourage students to put theory into practice within a real world context. There is a substantial advanced practical element to the course with students aiming to deliver an event of their own devising in groups of six students. Assessment consists of an individual formative piece, a group pitch assignment, a written group proposal and an individual reflective assignment.
