This case study concerns ’Travel and Society’, an advanced level module offered to students taking the Travel Management pathway at London Metropolitan University?s North Campus. It has been designed to introduce travel management students to the broad context of personal mobility. This module is unique, as for the first time it offers undergraduate students taking this pathway the opportunity to utilise Web-based assessment. At an employer’s forum, the concept was praised by the employers present as a suitable and innovative way of assessing learning within the context of developing the student for the workplace.
