        4.     Small Group Work
        5.     Project
        6.     Case Study

Learning Contracts
        A learning contract is a formal agreement written by a learner which details what
will be learned, how the learning will be accomplished, the period of time involved, and
the specific evaluation criteria to be used in judging the completion of the learning.

Discussion
         Discussion is the instructional strategy that is interactive and encourages active,
participatory learning. It encourages learners to analyze alternative ways of thinking and
acting and assists learners in exploring their own experiences so they can become better
critical thinkers.

Mentorship
       The aim of mentorship is to promote learner development drawing out and giving
form to what the student already knows.

Small Group Work
        In small groups learners can discuss content, share ideas, and solve problems. In
this way, they can be exposed to a variety of viewpoints on a given subject. First, they
allow small groups to work independently while still having access to the instructor. A
second benefit is that they equalize control among participants. Factors such as
geography, gender, or disabilities do not disadvantage learners in this environment.
Finally, the instructor is able to respond directly to questions and needs of particular
groups without taking the time of other groups.

Projects
        Projects provide students with practical experience and a sense of
accomplishment. Using projects in a learning activity makes the learning more relevant to
the learners.

Case Study
       The case study is a teaching strategy which requires learners to draw upon their
past experiences, is participatory and has action components which are links to future
experience.

Forum
        The forum is an open discussion carried on by one or more resource people and
an entire group.

settlement processes, for example, French nuclear testing and the role of the International
Court of Justice, the dispute between Cambodia, New Zealand, and Japan over tuna, the
South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission process, the use of joint

Credit Points: 4
Coordinator: To be advised
Prerequisites: Student s must complete at least 60 Credit points taught by Faculty of

Course Description:
This subject explores different models of strategy-making and examines some of the
difficulties involved in managing strategic change. Traditional models see strategy-
making as a straightforward, rational, 'top-down' process. Empirical work shows,
however, that the formulation and implementation of strategies is a complex process,
which is affected by political, cognitive, and contextual factors. Top managers can
formulate a detailed strategic plan; but plans are not always put into practice nor are the
plans that are put into practice necessarily successful. The subject commences by
reviewing traditional models of strategy-making where strategies are formed to derive a
competitive advantage that enables the organization to respond to environmental threats
and opportunities. Students will then be introduced to other models, including emergent,
political, logical increment list, configurationally and sense-making perspectives, to
explore how strategic change is managed.
