Principal Aims and Teaching Methods

This module addresses the social and political principles of GSD. Its teaching methods range from Stimulus to Simulation in order to allow students to engage with theoretically complex concepts through practical activities. It is taught in a combination of lectures and seminars and involves group activities as well as online collaboration.

This is a rich and fascinating module, the more time you spend reading independently and conducting research on the topics we are studying, the more rewarding you will find it. The knowledge and skills that you acquire on this module provide essential background for the GSD Project module and for the core second-year modules.
