Learning and assessment

You will undertake a range of learning and teaching activities to develop your knowledge and skills.

Research-based key lectures will provide the foundation for your learning. Lectures will be interactive sessions, providing opportunities to engage in active learning. Seminars and workshops will provide the opportunity to consolidate your knowledge and critically engage with current best evidence to support your professional development and to apply your learning to clinical practice.

Service user involvement will ensure your learning is authentic and provide you with the opportunity to engage with a variety of perspectives. You will be expected to utilise appropriate digital technologies and study skills to engage with additional resources directed by the module team, and independently directing your own learning.

The summative assessment for this module will be the completion of a practice-based reflective portfolio. The completion of the portfolio will allow you to critically reflect on your learning on the module and consider the impact of this on your professional practice. This mode of assessment allows you to contextualise your learning to your individual practice environment, resulting in a document which is highly personal and supports your own professional development. The assessment strategy is designed to support your professional revalidation obligations, should you want it to. The portfolio will be supported by guidance from staff, with the opportunity to submit elements of your work for formative consideration by the module team.
