Learning and assessment
Research informed key lectures will deliver core content, providing you with the opportunity to acquire knowledge and develop conceptual understanding. Labs and practicals will be held, if appropriate, to acquire new skills.
Seminars and group learning will be used to facilitate teacher/learner/ peer dialogue and interprofessional discussion, and further develop and challenge conceptual understanding.
Directed study provides you with the opportunity to undertake reading, participate in enquiry-based learning, address individual learning needs and contextualise learning to your own area of practice. A virtual learning environment is used to provide access to online resources, lecture notes & external links to websites of interest.
Assessment and feedback at individual tutorials, meetings and through electronic communication will facilitate reflection and self-assessment. Assessment is through an essay and a clinical competency assessment.
