- Work-based learning: Where learning is directed within the work environment and is reflected upon and then reported on.
- Work-based learning: Where skills are taught in relation to theory and best practice enabling students to develop advanced competence and clinical practice skills in their field of practice.
- Use of Web based virtual learning environments, such as video analysis, To access information and to interact with other students undertaking group work or developing wikis.
- Directed reading: Where set reading may be recommended.
- Self-Directed learning: Where student are expected to develop their own learning by identifying areas of interest and areas in which knowledge needs to be developed thus encouraging independence and development of critical thought.
- Undertaking a work based project or a research module which is shaped by self-directed learning needs and the learning outcomes at MSc level.
