Graduate Capabilities & Intended learning outcomes

1. Students should be able to explain the concept of time value of money and apply a range of investment decision models to value and appraise simple investment projects.

Activities:
Topics 6 - 8 and 12 are primarily focused on this ILO. Six TILOs are defined for each topic. A learning resource module has been identified for each TILO, each of which will require 15 minutes of engagement by the student prior to the first weekly seminar each week. After having engaged with the learning resources, students will need to complete an on-line quiz, which will provide both the students and the teachers with feedback on the level of understanding achieved. The first weekly seminar will focus on correcting the misunderstanding evident in the on-line quiz.
Related Graduate Capabilities and Elements:
Teamwork (Element 1)
Ethical Awareness (Element 3 & Element 4)

2. Students should be able to identify and describe elements of effective teamwork and apply them to the process of collaborative learning to turn a study group into a team focused on enhancing the individual learning of each member of the team.

Activities:
Topic 5 is primarily focused on ILOs 4 and 5. The tutorials in weeks 2 - 8 will involve the students completing a quiz on the week's topics individually and then re-completing the quiz in their team. By re-completing the quiz in their teams the teamwork and collaborative learning skill of the student will be exercised and developed.
