Teaching and Learning

Teaching includes lectures, informal small study groups, and individual or group presentations using a laptop and digital projector.

Tutors on this programme are leaders in the field of HR and active researchers within the School’s Human Resource Management and Organisation Behaviour Research Group (HRM-OB). Their research findings often contribute to relevant course content.

Tutors often provide their own seminal review papers, empirical studies, and theoretical models for consideration by the students. Students are asked to present their findings back to the group having critically assessed the research findings for themselves. The ensuing debate is used to deepen understanding and argue as to whether high-performance HRM practices do indeed contribute to organisational performance and profitability.

Current issues and case studies are also brought forth for debate as they happen.

One such example is Professor Ozbilgin’s book, Global Diversity Management: An Evidence Based Approach (2008) co-authored with Dr Ahu Tatli, which is a core text on the optional module of the same name. It is the only empirical research-based text in the field and contains original fieldwork on diversity management that spanned eight years.
