Decolonisation: The aims of decolonisation both complement and transcend efforts to create a diverse, inclusive learning environment. Its purpose is to reassess and restructure knowledge frameworks and received approaches to knowledge creation and transfer in Business and Marketing education. Our approach to decolonising the marketing curriculum is structured by our geographical and cultural context and allied to One Community values. As ecommerce businesses exist and grow in a global space it is increasingly important for marketing and ecommerce professionals to understand the where and how they operate acknowledging the local operating territory. The module will look to incorporate alternative worldviews around ecommerce business practices as well as ecommerce consumer behaviour. Success is difficult to measure for an emergent project such as decolonisation, which requires individuals to question what they think they know, and to change mindsets. Decolonisation of the curriculum and pedagogy cannot be reduced to a tick box exercise or simplistic curriculum mapping. It is an ongoing process which will continue to affect the reshaping of our curriculum and reconfiguration of our pedagogy in years to come. However, the Module will begin to be informed by the practices of revealing coloniality, informing of historic and present harms around ecommerce business practices with a view to educating ourselves around decolonial approaches at the level of business owner as well as the ecommerce consumer. We will give specific focus to supply chain, human resource, impact investment, social influence.

Prioritising Face-to-Face Teaching

At the University of Lincoln, we strive to ensure our students’ experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have adapted to Government guidance to keep our students, staff, and community safe. All remaining Covid-19 legal restrictions in England were lifted in February 2022 under the Government’s Plan for Living with Covid-19, and we have embraced a safe return to in-person teaching on campus. Where appropriate, face-to-face teaching is enhanced by the use of digital tools and technology and may be complemented by online opportunities where these support learning outcomes.

We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance make this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed. For more information about how we are working to keep our community safe, please visit our coronavirus web pages.

The University intends to provide its courses as outlined in these pages, although the University may make changes in accordance with the Student Admissions Terms and Conditions.
