Unit 04: Project Design Implementation and Evaluation [Mandatory Unit]

Unit 04: Project Design Implementation and Evaluation [Mandatory Unit]

1.    Introduction

This unit provides opportunities to develop skills in decision making, problem solving and communication integrated with the skills and knowledge developed in many of the other units within the programme to complete a realistic project. It requires the learner to select, plan, implement and evaluate a project and finally present the outcomes, in terms of the process and the product of the project. It also allows learners to develop the ability to work individually and/or with others, within a defined timescale and given constraints, to produce an acceptable and viable solution to an agreed brief.

 

If this is a group project, each member of the team must be clear about their responsibilities at the start of the project and supervisors must ensure that everyone is accountable for each aspect of the work and makes a contribution to the end result. Learners must work under the supervision of programme tutors or work-based managers.

 1.1.        Aim

 To develop learners’ skills of independent enquiry by undertaking a sustained investigation of direct relevance to their vocational, academic and professional development.

 1.2.        Objectives

 On successful completion of this unit a learner will:

ü  Be able to formulate a project

ü  Be able to implement the project within agreed procedures and to specification

ü  Be able to evaluate the project outcomes

ü  Be able to present the project outcomes.

3.1 use appropriate project evaluation techniques

3.2 interpret and analyse the results in terms of the originalproject specification

3.3 make recommendations and justify areas for furtherconsideration 

LO4:

Be able to present the projectoutcomes

 4.1 produce a record of all project procedures used

4.2 use an agreed format and appropriate media to presentthe outcomes of the project to an audience.

4.0.        Teaching and learning Methods

This unit requires a range of skills and strategies to be employed for teaching and learning.

This is suitable for use for a range of sectors and should utilise the full range of skills developed through study of other units in the programme. These include planning, practical work, data handling and processing, critical analysis and presentation skills.

The afore-mentioned can be achieved through the use of a number of teaching and learning  tools such as class tutorials, group discussion, quiz, workshop, project management case studies, good practices scenarios, project implementation, exercises, log booking and presentation skills.

This knowledge gained from this mandatory unit can be applied to a number of other units in the programme as well.

Assessment Methods -Summary

A key feature of the assessment strategy for this unit is the practical implementation of a sustained investigation on a given problem.

The assessment will consist of an individual reportbased on a case scenario chosen for the purpose to address all the learning outcomes and the implied assessment criteria.

The assessment will comprise of four key components – planning a project, implementing it, evaluating outcomes and presenting outcomes.

Teaching and Learning Activities

 The module tutor(s) will aim to combine lectures with tutorial activities. This environment will provide opportunities for the student to understand the course material through case study and text and to apply it in a practical way. The intent is to facilitate interactive class activities, and discussion about the significant role of research in a global and local business environment.

 2.3       Teaching Ethos

The college’s approach towards teaching and learning is simple and effective. The main aim of UKCBC is to assist learners in maximising their potential by ensuring that they are taught clearly and effectively. This will enable students to engage in the learning environment and promote success in both their academic studies and subsequent career.

2.3.1 Methods of Delivery:

LECTURES:

These will be developed around the key concepts as mentioned in the indicative course content and will use a range of live examples and cases from business practice to demonstrate the application of theoretical concepts. This method is primarily used to identify and explain key aspects of the subject so that learners can utilise their private study time more effectively.

 SEMINARS:

These are in addition to the lectures. The seminars are designed to give learners the opportunity to test their understanding of the material covered in the lectures and private study with the help of reference books. This methodology usually carries a set of questions identified in advance. Seminars are interactive sessions led by the learners. This method of study gives the learner an excellent opportunity to clarify any points of difficulty with the tutor and simultaneously develop their oral communication skills.

 CASE STUDIES:An important learning methodology is the extensive use of case studies. They enable learners to apply the concepts that they learn in their subjects. The learners have to study the case, analyse the facts presented and arrive at conclusions and recommendations. This assists in the assessment of the learner’s ability to apply to the real world the tools and techniques of analysis which they have learnt. The case study serves as a supplement to the theoretical knowledge imparted through the course work.

 6.0.      Assessment

 Academic Misconduct’ Statement:

‘Academic Misconduct’ is a term used to describe a deliberate attempt by a student to take unfair advantage over other students to undermine the quality, standards and credibility of the programmes and qualifications offer by UKCBC. Academic Misconduct includes: plagiarism; collusion; falsification; replication; cheating; bribery; and impersonation. A student suspected of Academic Misconduct will be investigated by the College and appropriate action will be taken.

 Contract Cheating’ Statement:

‘Contract Cheating’ is defined by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) as occurring when, “a third party completes work for a student who then submits it to an education provider as their own, where such input is not permitted.” Such third party companies have become known as ‘essay mills’, and it is the responsibility of students to avoid contact and association with such third party companies throughout their entire period of study. A student suspected of Contract Cheating will be investigated by the College and appropriate action will be taken.
