To share my 2 years' experiences of delivering a MSc module through an innovative approach involving a partnership with an industry practitioner/ consultant

  • MSc Leading and Managing PE & Youth Sport, Sports Development
  • Strategic Policy and Practice module
  • 5/6 students per year - recent graduates, 3/5 years work experience in PE or sport development roles
  • 15 credits delivered over 2 weekends (12 hours contact time)
rationale for the approach
Rationale for the approach
  • Aspirations for students (leaders of the future)
  • Subject complexity
  • My limited knowledge base
  • My time constraints
  • My professional relationship with Steve
  • His interest in the HE sector
our approach
Our approach
  • Module content built around the recognised 5 stage strategy process
  • Critique of academic literature (self-directed task)
  • 'Real life' case study and 'model' outcomes framework
  • Role play and character acting - tutors and invited guests
  • Group exercises
  • Discussion/debates
  • Coaching techniques - visualisation, goal setting and motivation
  • Introduction to advanced communication skills
  • Self-directed tasks completed between sessions
  • Signposting to additional academic and professional resources
  • Assessment - critical investigation of an organisation's approach to strategy
key issues

student feedback
Student feedback
  • "The module was a valuable experience that I have taken back into my workplace and have already applied in my leadership role. I am confident that what I have learnt will further aid my ability to use strategy in the short, medium and long term"
  • "The learning and teaching methods were innovative and engaged me to think about strategy in a different light. Practical industry knowledge and the academic underpinning enabled me to look at strategy from a number of perspectives"
  • "Extremely relevant to my current role"
  • "Having both an academic and a practitioner in the room really brought the content to life. It was also interesting to see that on occasions their viewpoints were different. Worked really well"
practitioner comments
Practitioner comments
  • The approach enablesdthestudents to be exposed to leading sport sector strategic concepts & practices (e.g. Outcomes Frameworks) that they wouldn't be able to read about (because little has been written about them yet!)
  • The approach triggered debate between the tutors & the students, which created energy, engaged the students, challenges & changed their thinking
  • The approach created the opportunity for real examples & cases studies, which engaged the students and enabled them to develop clarity
  • The approach allowedpractical application of the concepts within the students' organisations.  This represented added value for the students & their employers as they can use the Module to generate actual improvement within their organisations.
  • The approach provided the opportunity to present joined-up thinking relating to organisationalexcellence.This type of 'system thinking' is as the heart of future success for the sport sector. 
  • The approach gave us the opportunity to develop the type of strategic thinking which will be vital in leaders of the future
the future
The future
